August 13 - September 17, 2021
Like most children, I loved to draw, but like a lot of us, I was distracted by life. At the encouragement of a friend, I enrolled in an oil painting class at the age of 50. I have thanked her often for encouraging me to join her! I am referred to as a self-taught artist, no formal art education, although I have taken classes and workshops from some amazing artists. My preferred medium is oil. I was initially drawn to portraiture, but I have broadened my horizons to include still life, landscapes, and abstracts. It is truly all about the light and dark. My personal style is always evolving but I do love impressionism! It has been my pleasure to meet people that love the arts and are appreciative of what artists do. There is much to love about the entire painting process: learning to see, sketching, holding the brush, mixing the colors, the first kiss of paint to the canvas, and, of course, the exhilaration of creating something from the void, something that was not there before.
Thanks for looking.
