Artist's Statement:

When I was young, I loved drawing and creative pursuits. Later, I took the "sensible" route and earned a business degree. For many years, while working a series of demanding jobs and taking care of house and husband, I put my artwork on hold. When I retired in 2012 from a career in technology and education, I decided to rekindle my creative side and took up painting. I’m so glad that I did!

 

I have found much to love in drawing and painting. Using line and color to create visual representations of the many glorious beauties in our world is magic to me. It's so rewarding to touch someone by having them be moved and drawn in by one of my works. I also love that there is always something more to learn and try. I enjoy experimenting with various techniques for representing diverse subject matter. I believe a passion for learning is vital in creating art and love that I discover something new with each painting.
