Artist Statement:
My art is a calling. It compels me to create works that glorify the awesome beauty of our world. I am drawn to magnify, through my paintings, the glorius spirit that is inherent in the landscapes, people, flora, and fauna of planet Ea rth. Man-made objects can also enchant when they are "uplifted" in a work of art.It is my hope that I can elicit an emotional response, or at least a new insight for the viewer for the subject of my paintings.
I work with oils, acrylics, watercolors, collage, and pastels. My favorite medium is the one I am using at the moment! Teaching others to make beautiful art is also part of my calling. Art is wonderful therapy, and certainly helps release emotions. Joy is the hoped for end result. No matter what the age or disability, creating art brings self awareness, healing, and peace.
Studying art opened the door to a world of visual possibilities. I was drawn to the colors and light of the Impressionists, but also the dramatic realism of.old world masters and American Romantics. When a form is illuminated it emerges magically from the dark values around it creating the illusion of three dimensions on the two demensional.surface of a paper or canvas. This becomes the process that I embrace as my paintings come slowly into the level of focus that I desire to tell my story.
