I don’t know you said it first but: “ART is learning to see”. As a visual artist I’m inspired by things around me, I especially look for patterns: the leaves on a tree, colors in the shadows, the layers of a landscape, how the light hits an object . . . it is all around you, look closely.

For me art is also a journey not a destination. Every time I paint I feel an almost spiritual connection to the universe; it is like I’m outside myself in a different sphere or “In the zone”. I loose track of time and where I am. Fortunately for me if I go too long my dog Sophie will come nudge me back to the here and now.

I am primarily a self taught artist and have always felt creative. I worked my way through college by teaching crafts at an arts and crafts store, everything from embroidery and macramé to tole painting and pottery.

My true art career started with water color painting by taking a class at a local community college. I have also taken numerous workshops from other practicing artists. Being with a group of other artists creates a synergy that inspires me. I now primarily work wtih acrylics and collage with an abstract subject. I especially love intense color, and have made a study of color composition. I enjoy experimenting with different media and techniques. There are so many new things to try!

As you can see by the photo, I love dogs. I recently adopted a new guy, his name is Charlie and is quite a character, we are getting to know each other.
