Art is part of our soul. Beauty can be found in everything from old trucks to blooming flowers. I find many exciting subjects from my own backyard. I find many exciting subjects to paint when my husband and I travel to antique car shows.
I paint Plein air, take photos and bring the references back to my studio. I start with a strong underpainting of dark earth tones. Doing this first helps me find a rhythm that moves you through the painting. Many times some underpainting will show through. My tools are good brushes, a smooth linen surface, and a limited pallet of buttery paint.
I didn’t have formal training. I have taken workshops with great artists like David and Pam Lussier, Tim Horn, and Todd Bonita. My goals are a one-man show and to be accepted in more galleries.
