I learned in junior high that I was not an artist because I couldn’t draw, and that lesson stayed with me for a very long time. Eventually, I discovered that there are many different ways to create art and I gave myself permission to try. Sometimes, I succeed!
My digital imagery and art card work explores colors, patterns, shapes, and textures with photographs, often focusing on trees. Each piece begins with an original photograph that I manipulate, alter, and enhance until I find what I’m looking for.
My new fluid art paintings are explorations in color and shape, with an emphasis on color. Now I'm starting to combine the acrylic paintings with the digital imagery.
I'm a casual artist, working as time and ideas allow. Occasionally my pieces are displayed in a show, but my main reason for creating is because I enjoy it and I like the end result.
