Although I have always been creative, I only became an artist about eighteen years ago. I started with oil but became allergic. Approximately the last seven years I have been working with acrylic and texture. Some watercolor, pen & ink and pastel have slipped into some of my artwork too.
I consider myself a self-taught artist. Studying books, taking a few workshops, experimentation and discovery have primarily been my education. The more art I create, the more I learn…then I want to create more art!
My artwork leans to the abstract genre. I enjoy the challenge of shape, color and line interaction and how it all relates in the composition.
I teach “Artistic Creative Expression” to School age children. I created my own program for this. Through paper, paint, pencil, mixed media and recyclable material students learn to grow with art. They also create with food.
I also teach creative collages and meaningful mandalas for all ages.
My artwork is my life. Creating art and appreciating art is necessary for healthy living.
