My artwork is inspired by many things. People I know. Places that strike me. Things that I care about. A high school art teacher was the first motivate me to put more focus into art, to take it from a hobby to a rich thread that would wind throughout my life. My second mentor didn’t present himself until many years later, after I was well into a corporate career and a family. On Wednesday nights, we would paint in a small group – it was the first time I’d painted in oils other than childhood paint-by-number. I like new materials, skewed perspectives, and consider myself an art wanderer. Canvas and paint; automotive admixtures and photography; gels and acetate squares; they’ve all made their way into a work. My deepest connections, however, are with oil paint and soft pastels. The most incredible aspect of a work of art, is in the observation by the viewer and the connection that is made when the art is observed, and understood or felt. An artist pours some of her soul into every work. Can you feel it?
