I am a self taught artist and I enjoy painting. I like my pieces to capture an Impressionistic vibe, realistic but not accurate. I take a lot of photos and many have inspired me to paint them. I enjoy acrylic and watercolor.
I take a break from my easel occasionally as I have other interests. I also make jewelry, macramé and eco print. Interests that keep my engaged!I am an artist who creates what I love and I love what I create.
I have always loved art and I have enjoyed creating art in some way, shape or form. I am particularly fond of flowers, nature and old trucks. I always like the composition part of creating a painting: what makes this picture look great? I love photography and some of my paintings come from my own photos.I have worked with acrylics since high school. Another love of mine is pen and ink, particularly using the technique of pointillism. Several years ago I took a class and learned zentangling which I have incorporated into most of my ink drawings. In the past year, I have tried several different mediums and I enjoy painting now with water base oil paint. I have also done watercolor and sometimes hop around in all these wonderful mediums. It keeps me excited and exploring!I like that my paintings, ink drawings and photographs are reminders of a time of year, or a place I visited, or of quiet time I had in my studio. I’m often just wrapped up in the completion of a new painting (maybe with an unfamiliar medium), and the feeling of accomplishment.
