Join me as I share my life stories though imagery, created primarily in oil on canvas, or on wood panels. I also work in watercolors, collage, and colored pencil. I use my sketches from the field, along with my own photography to create a visual experience. One usually passes through the landscape, or places in our daily lives, failing to recognize it's uniqueness, emotion, or life. Traveling along our chosen path every day, taking what one sees for granted. One fails to realize that these images will become important elements in our memories. Reflecting upon a landscape which I have recently passed through, or recalling one from childhood, brings me the images to paint. The colors and shapes are strong, yet often fragmented images in my mind. The mental “snapshots” when melded together may tell a story, create a mood, or recall a memory. I search for a sense of place, how I relate to it, and the emotions and memories which it evokes. Currently I am focusing on paintings from visits to our National Parks.
I am exhibiting two paintings in a jury selected show, Treasures of our Coastal State. I was awarded third place in this exhibition for Passing Storm on the Intracoastal. I am also exhibiting in two shows with the National Association of Women Artists, both are jury selected online exhibitions.
