Out With the I positive upbeat mid career self taught artist...no art degree - just daily determination to paint well with a splash of entrepreneurial spirit. My glass is always half full even on a rainy day. Being a problem solver, I really enjoy color and mix paint until the right colors are created. From conception to completion I am constantly thinking of one thing...."Will this tell a story and will it make a home complete?" The greatest achievement to an artist is to be able to place artwork in the hands of someone who has the same vision as the creator. We all work hand in hand and the end result can bring tremendous visual joy in its final location.
My art is influenced so greatly on interaction with daily life. I paint in a studio that was a gift from my husband. He understands how much I truly enjoy painting. Being a truly happy person leads to happy color combinations. Mixing and dividing paint takes some time but gives great color composition. As far as subject matter they need to have a relationship that drives emotion to ones past or future. This is a focus for me, space, color theory, scale, makes me a little dizzy trying to follow some sense of rules. I will break them at times and is so freeing!
Owning an art gallery for 6 years was the most important journey to painting. I was surrounded by pottery, paintings and so much creativity! But, my brushes dried and I was never at the easel. We closed the gallery last year and I picked up my old dear paints, just diving in. Honestly, I was simply scared to death I would loose my feel for the paint and canvas. I want to create pieces that will work well in a home or corporate setting.
A sincere thank you for visiting the web site. Your support and recommendations keep an artist creative paint flowing.
