Our eyes and mind
generally process millions of hues, tones, tints, and shades
everyday, as visual information. In my artwork, I also process this
emotionally and sensually. I try to give the viewer a sense of place
to remind them of somewhere they have been or would like to go.
shadow and texture are used to give a third dimension and depth in
many of my paintings. Other times, I flatten out the planes, and shape
and textures become more important. Whether imbuing a portrait with
the soul of the person or the harmony and beauty of the scene, I am
passionate in my quest for excellence in my painting and teaching.
After 25 years working as an interior designer, I
discovered that I had a flair for another artistic expression - painting.
I started working in pastels more than 13 years ago and eventually added
watercolor, oils and acrylics to my repertoire. I continue to be a lifetime
member of the National Transparent Watercolor Society. I belong to the
following art associations:
League, Gainsville, Georgia,
Society, Atlanta Georgia, southeasternpastel.org
Gallery, Gainsville, Georgia.
