I've been painting as long as I can remember. I was 8 when my grandma finally allowed me to sit in on her art classes, so I started my art journey in grandma's tole painting class, using oil paints.
Through my education and careers, I continued to paint. I began using acrylics, and painted on furniture, walls, wood, and textiles. I've painted on just about every surface that will take paint (and a few that didn't).
"Artist" is my superhero persona; "teacher" is my day job. I am fortunate to teach video production to high school students. My classroom walls look more like a gallery than a classroom, and I tend to attract many artists as students.
I do hope you enjoy browsing my body of work. And, if you are inclined, reach out and say hi through email. I'm happy to answer questions, or just chat!
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
I should probably list famous artists here whom I respect and love. But, honestly, I find inspiration everywhere! I really love working with other artists, as I find creativity is even juicier when shared. I paint from my own photography, my imagination and sometimes at the urgency of the goddesses themselves!
I mostly use acrylics, but you will find "mixed media" in some of my favorite pieces. I'm often moved to include patterned paper or objects, gold leaf, watercolor, ink, or oil bars.
The online art community has been educational and supportive at every turn. I am grateful for the teachings of Fonda Haight Clark, Emma Petitt, Deb Weirs, Yvonne Morrell for their encouragement and instruction.
