About The Artist
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
I wish I could spin you a line like: 'my brushstrokes are inspired by Wei Dynasty calligraphy, but my palette reflects the jewel tones of Medieval stained glass'.
But that is not me.
I am just an old grandmother soul that has been creating since I first got a chubby baby fist on a crayon. For decades, I have worked in a variety of media, in many sizes, and in several themes. Some may reoccur and occasionally mingle with others.
My artwork sprawls from impressionist over to, but never reaching, absolute realism. It reflects my life, mental state and interests. I adore dramatic color and very often lean towards a blue/orange dynamic. Skies are rarely calm, buildings should look old and lived in, and people should make you wish you could meet them.
I don't exactly have a 'chosen art form'. I began with hand-built figures, added watercolors, then acrylics. Along the way, I have tried marble, bronze-casting... I have worked from miniature figures, 9' tall with peacock feather vanes for eyelashes to a mural 150' x 42' tall. I enjoy colors, drama and challenges. I paint the things and people I have loved along my journey through the years.
