I love art! And more than that I love creating art. I have always been inspired by color, image, story on canvas. I began painting in 2014 at the fading of a 25 year career in business and on the cusp of a tenacious curiosity about color. With some drawing classes, playing with pastels and lots of doodling experience under my belt I decided it was time to see what might happen if I picked up a paint brush and learned a bit about color. Much to my surprise without much thought my passion began to dance on the canvas. It’s been a love story ever since.
Making art brings me joy, and a painting’s process connects me more deeply to myself. I am motivated by the miracle of each piece’s evolution and by its final completion, you viewing the art and having your experience with it.
Currently my artwork stands for serenity, kindness and power. I am hoping to inspire and bring tranquility to audiences, to fill empty spaces with color and to comfort healing hearts with original works, all of which have been gifted to me by other’s art throughout my life. My inspiration comes from my childhood in the deep south and my transformative process here in the Rocky Mountains and vast plains of Colorado.
I adopt whatever materials when used feel like an extension of my body. Currently, it is mostly palette knife with some brush, along with large scrapers, water and rags. I use a lot of paint, acrylic paint, pushing and pulling to form texture and diffuse lines.
