Announcement   Welcome to my gallery.
I am essentially a self taught artist. I originally indulged my love of color and design by making and designing hand dyed silk clothing, Always inquisitive, I am motivated to expand my artistic horizons by experimentation with a variety of different mediums. My goal and challenge is to explore new ways to work with each medium, depending on the mood I wish to create.

My large flower paintings are inspired by the need to capture the "soul" of the flower. The sensual forms of a flower generate a desire to express the "spirit" I feel when I explore deep within the abstracted center of these forms. I feel a compulsion to draw those forms over and over, connecting me to my soul and spirit within.

Experienced in oil, watercolor, acrylic and pastel, I am drawn to the ancient medium of Encaustic (painting with molten wax and resin) the beautiful translucency created with overlapping layers of color and the addition of collage elements add depth to the visual theme.

For the last 3 years, most of my work has been with Polymer Clay. I love using the translucent clay to create faux opals and other faux gems. The immediacy and sensuality of working with the clay is very tactile and addicting. Polymer clay is similar to Encaustic in that each medium involves transparency and layering. As an artist that loves to discover more ways of working with different media, the polymer clay is something that one can never stop finding something new to make with it. I have collected beads and vintage jewelry over a lifetime, and mixing them with the polymer clay is very creative. I combine the polymer clay with flowers and art nouveau elements that i create with wire, laquers and resin. I think as I get older, it is good to work with something small that can be made within a day or less.

About

LATE BLOOMER

I AM 72 YEARS OLD NOW, AND DIDN'T REALLY START PAINTING AND JEWELRY MAKING UNTIL I WAS DIVORCED AND GAVE UP "MEN AS MY PROJECTS"
MY CHILDREN WERE ALL GROWN UP AND MOVED AWAY, AND I FACED THE "BLANK CANVAS OF MY LIFE". IT WAS VERY SCARY, BECAUSE I HAD NEVER BEEN IN THIS PLACE BEFORE. I WAS 50 YEARS OLD.
I STRUGGLED WITH MANY MEDIUMS, BUT NOW I AM DOING WHAT I LOVE, DISCOVERING NEW THINGS TO CREATE. I LOVE FIGURING OUT HOW TO DO SOMETHING NEW. IT IS ALWAYS EXCITING FOR ME.
PEOPLE ALWAYS SAY "WOW, YOU DO SO MANY ARTISTIC THINGS". ANYTHING I DO, IT IS ALWAYS FINDING HOW I CAN DO IT "MY WAY". MY PASSION FOR THE ARTS, GETS ME UP EVERY DAY, LOOKING FORWARD TO WHAT I CAN CREATE OR FIGURE OUT!
I LOVE "MENTORING" OTHER STUDENTS, FINDING THEIR OWN UNIQUE EXPRESSION OF THEIR OWN CREATIVE JOURNEY.
AT THIS TIME, MY STUDIO IS IN MY HOUSE. IN FACT I ALSO BRING WHAT I AM WORKING ON, IN MY COMFORTABLE CHAIR USING THE FOOT STOOL IN FRONT OF IT TO WORK ON! WHEN I AM IN MY CREATIVE PROCESS, I CAN PULL OUT EVERYTHING AND SIT NEXT TO THE SLIDING GLASS DOOR AND THE TV IN FRONT OF ME! WHEN I FINALLY LOOK AROUND, THE PLACE IS A MESS!! HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?? WELL, OBVIOUSLY I WOULD RATHER DO ART THAN CLEAN UP A MESS! THE OLDER I GET, THE LESS I WANT TO WAIST MY TIME CLEANING UP...BUT THEN I CAN FIND ANYTHING BECAUSE IT ISN'T ORGANIZED!! CAN YOU RELATE??
