Thank you to all the AOS visitors for wearing masks while stopping at studios for the 2021 tour.
2022: Most likely the Tour Guide will not be mailed.
When I majored in Interior Design at the University of Georgia, the design courses were drawing classes. Obviously I had not found my niche because I did not like drawing. Continuing my education in interior design in Boston, I discovered mechanical drawing, rendering and weaving. I was in heaven. Weaving became my passion! Color and texture my paint brushes.
With my children grown and retirement here, I could indulge my urge to create - from jewelry to polymer clay beads and sculptures, mixed media and fiber sculpture. I love it all. Art makes me happy. The definition of art has expanded to include all the things I like to do. Thanks to the gift of a good digital camera from my children, the world of photography was suddenly affordable for taking pictures of everything.
From taking nature shots, I moved on to manipulating photos to achieve the look of a painting. When that did not satisfy me, I started digitally painting over my photos. Soon I was extracting images and putting them on a background I had created. There were no limits! Often I create by using digital brushes on a blank screen. Color has always spoken to me and I like to use intense color. When I look at my digital paintings, I want to just dive into the color! My hope is that people will find my color-filled art uplifting.
