|I put down my paintbrush upon graduation from college and started my career as a graphic designer. I have worked in the field for over 35 years now and continue to work as an Art Director. In the blink of an eye, we were empty nesters, and I found myself feeling the need to start a new chapter. So, I picked up a paintbrush again, and started my new creative adventure.
Acrylic paint is my medium of choice, but I have chosen to add various forms of texture to take my artwork to a new dimension. I feel like I have been on an amazing journey as I explore the use of corrugated cardboard, aluminum foil, hand-painted papers, and anything else I can think of to incorporate into my artwork. After purchasing many items from the art supply store, I have turned to the local hardware store to enhance my creations. My journey has led me from realistic to abstract, with a style I call, "Perfectly Imperfect," somewhere in between. I have used a large selection of palette knives, brushes and also non-traditional objects to create different styles. As an artist, I have decided to do a variety of subjects, in a variety of styles, instead of choosing just one style that represents me.
I feel as though I put a little piece of my heart in every piece I create and my artistic soul helps guide me through my choice of colors and mediums.
Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to view my artwork.
