Who am I?
Just a normal, middle-aged woman who’s been painting and drawing as long as I can remember and simply can’t live without creating. I am drawn to – no, OBSESSED – with nature… especially to those animals that soar and dive and go where I cannot.
I finally figured out in my 40’s that there is no wrong way to make art. Almost immediately after that revelation, I started feeling that my works until that point, while good, were just “painted photos.” It led me to a recent “search for self” in my artistic style. And thankfully, I found that missing piece of myself!
I’m a very visual personality, drawn to symbolism and patterns. I want my art to convey the stronger emotions in life… romance and love, mystery and a little darkness, or quirky and fun. My somewhat amorphous creatures help me portray the shifting nature of life. I find myself doing smaller works due to the intimacy I can achieve with the you, the viewer – pulling you in for a closer look. While I started mainly with watercolors, I’m finding acrylics to be my current media because of all the textures I can play with.
I live near the ocean in Morro Bay, CA with my husband and son and am surrounded by such beauty on a daily basis, that it almost makes me cry.
