About

About

I can not remember a time when I did not feel at home as an artist.  While I appreciate the importance of showing and sharing my work, my heart has always been in the creative process of expressing the way I look at the world through my art.

I see lines.  I see shapes. I see movement. I see patterns and colors.  I want to translate, abstract and highlight the parts I see, so others can feel the story and the history.  Each piece tells a story of what I saw, what I thought and felt and where I was in this world.

I have traveled and lived around the world with my husband, first with the military, then with his work.  From the east coast to the south and to the west coast of the United States and overseas to South Africa, Venezuela and The Netherlands.  All have had a profound impact on me, including the art and architecture, the people,  and especially their local art, artists and teachers.

I love the process of applying what I learn.  This has worked into my original perspective, but tweaked to suit my needs.  I work my art like a puzzle, fitting in pieces, color and techniques, trying them and removing them if the do not fit.

I am starting to see a convergence of all I have learned over the years.  I am considering bringing together my love of photography, collage, textiles, mixed media, encaustic and cold wax into a larger, or three-dimensional perspective of the world.
