AN ARTISTIC JOURNEY
My art journey began with charcoal sketching in grade school. I later began to use the pastels that had once been gifted to my father by his own art instructor. I treasure them still and often combine them with other media. After several years of study and work with pastels, I began to experiment with acrylics and oils. I now use many wonderful mixed media materials that entice me to maintain a daily studio practice and cannot imagine a more satisfying calling.
ABOUT MY WORK & PROCESS
My imaginative work offers viewers an opportunity to immerse themselves in the shapes and colors of both real and imagined worlds. I strive to offer a different perspective on the small scenes we might not notice as we go about our busy lives.
Natural elements offer endless inspiration for color and design. I often begin with no intention and working intuitively, follow the painting wherever it leads. These pieces evolve over many layers of paint application and may include texture, collage or other processes that are challenging and exciting to pursue.
