Painting

    My style has evolved with my journeys through life---ranging from representational to impressionistic and some abstraction.  I most often work with oils and acrylics because of the textures and the way that layering creates depth—layers of paint coming together to create a different result every time.  I never think of “making a statement” with my work, but rather to express a mood or to just to enjoy the colors and shapes.


My paintings and designs cover a range of subjects and styles, but my main focus is always on color and movement.  Some of my favorite subjects have been foliage, flowers and landscapes because of the way they encourage variety and flexibility in the creation of the painting.   

Starting my art training at age 12 with weekly art lessons, I learned the basics of color, design, and paint techniques.  Through the years, I have experimented with numerous media and various projects, classes, and courses.  Since getting back into taking my art “seriously” in 2000, I have participated in numerous shows and exhibits and have received several awards.
