About

I`m a retired teacher...yes did teach Arts at the elementary level. The young people I`ve taught have inspired me with their zest for life, their imagination and creativity. A lot of my Art is quite naive because of that. I Love to create using different objects found in nature ...a few pieces of driftwood become a gnome village, a pebble is transformed into a little child looking up at a birds nest. These objects talk to me, thy tell me what thy want me to create. I usually don`t alter the driftwood...I assemble the pieces then paint on them, or just leave them as is. The masks aren`t varnished because as soon as you varnish them the color changes.For the masks I try to pick pieces with some contrast, but not a lot. I also quilt a bit, even adding some of my little quilts to a wood background....But mostly, I`m just having fun and enjoying my retirement!!
