For me being an artist is the greatest opportunity to express my love of nature. I was fortunate to grow up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Now living here in Grayland, I still enjoy that country lifestyle, surrounded by the beauty of nature by the sea and in the air. I can now watch the hummingbirds year round! I spend lots of time working in my flower gardens, watching wildlife and taking photographs, mostly for painting references.
Art in one form or another has always been part of my life. I don't have any formal art training but I am very fortunate to have lots of encouragement and support from my family and friends. Acrylics are my favorite painting medium and birds are one of my favorite subjects. I am beginning to experiment in collage and mixed media designs.
For me it is really all about having fun, doing what you love, making yourself happy with what you create and when you have a favorable response to your work, that is a really,really wonderful added bonus! Thank you for taking the time to stop by and look at my work.
