For me, Art has been a lifelong journey of creativity – from using a sewing machine to expanding my wardrobe, to remodeling our century old home while raising our children and practicing nursing and, finally – watercolor painting, an activity to counteract my empty nest syndrome. When I realized this medium could capture the essence of a mood or memory or describe a pleasure, I fell in love with watercolor!
Over the years I have enjoyed my ventures into all kinds of subject matter, locations and opportunities to paint and exhibit. I have experienced wonderful people at art fairs and events in our 4 state area. I think there is power in the art we fashion, and this energy can be shared with others. I do like to create drama and boldness in my paintings by playing with light and shadows and shades of color in between. I can get lost for hours in the creative process enjoying the serendipity of mixing paint on paper, rapid spreading of color, use of layering and texture. With a little help from a photo, I can remember why I liked a certain scene, be it peaceful or active, and in memory I am there.
Always wanting to learn more about watercolor, I love to take workshops to get a new perspective about the process. I am currently exploring a path of light theme with mostly representational art. I also enjoy experimenting with acrylics, watercolor and gouache (watermedia) to capture the advantages of each medium. I am so fortunate and grateful for my artistic gifts which help me feel connected to my divine roots along with all of nature.
