I love 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.
My art brings me joy, and it’s evolving process connects me more deeply to myself. I am motivated by the miracle of a each piece’s evolution and by it’s final completion, you viewing the art and having your experience with it.
My work stands for serenity, kindness and power. I want to inspire and bring tranquility to audiences, to fill empty spaces with color and comforting image to healing hearts, all of which I have also been gifted through the experience of painting and creating art. My inspiration comes from my childhood in the deep south and my transformation here in the Rocky Mountains and vast plains of Colorado.
I use whatever materials when used feel like an extension of my body (the heart, the gut, the arms, the hands). Currently, it is mostly palette knife with some brush, along with large scrapers, water and rags. I use a lot of paint, acrylics, pushing and pulling to form texture and diffuse lines.
