About the Artist

“I am a 65 year old woman who finally has the time, enthusiastic dedication and resources to devote to the joy of making visual art. I have a lifetime behind me of art teaching, entrepreneurship, child rearing and manual labor. Now in retirement, I have been creating in oil and acrylic paint speaking my heart through visual story-telling.

I believe that there is a life force or energy generated from all living and organic things. This force, I believe, is shared, exchanged and expressed all the time. Being still in art-making allows me to experience these interactions and exchanges. I am drawn to witnessing the energy between people, people and nature and nature itself.

The discipline of materials and composition, the language of art-making, dictates my vocabulary. I try to strike a balance between the tension of language and my experience. My discipline, I hope, allows me to expree these exhgnages.

My intent is that the context of the subject, the composition of the work, the texture, lines, brushstrokes and colors manifest and expresses these exchanges. I often discover that this actually happens during the process of creating. I also believe that I am attracted to these moments because these elements at the time are coming together in a unified expression.

Seeing instead of looking is truly a gift to my soul.”
