About the Artwork
Title: "Golden Calla Lily"
Size: 25" x 27" framed
Growing up I always enjoyed sketching, painting and crafts but I was never serious because I was busy raising my family and making a living. When I retired, I started taking classes from Anna Kay Singley who introduced me to everything from collage to making paper, to acrylic, to printmaking, to pottery, to watercolor and many other creative media. I love learning from other artists and try to combine my thirst to learn with my desire to travel. Some of my favorite subjects are of places I have visited around the world and some of my favorite paintings are images created from my photos or on location.
My style goes from semi-realistic to somewhat quirky. My favorite medium is watercolor – I love how the water and pigment work together to create an interesting and sometimes unexpected result. I also work in collage and acrylic. I am a member of SC Watermedia Society and Crooked Creek Art League where I have served as Treasurer for nearly eight years. I have won awards in various competitions and love the thrill of winning, but the best satisfaction comes in creating something that satisfies my own critical eye.
