Artist’s Statement

Creating art work is challenging and satisfying,sharing it with others brings me great joy. Whether painting an abstract, a landscape, or other subjectsmy hope is for the viewer to experience awe and joy.Painting small Art o Mat pieces has been a new way to share my creativity.

Through my painting, I am trying to capture the essence of a scene that has left an everlasting impression on me and bring it to the viewer. Painting encourages me to be more observant, creative and satisfy my desire to use my imagination. As an artist striving to make an ordinary scene or object interesting, colorful, and exciting when paint touches the canvas.Looking for ways to improve and grow as an artist is my focus and goal

Biography
Throughout my life, I have appreciated artwork. After being inspired by other people’s ability to paint, I began painting in 2008. While working as a School Counselor, taking painting classes during the summer months was enjoyable. Painting soon became a passion, and since my retirement in 2013, more of my timeis devoted to painting.

Using oils and acrylics, has been my main medium. Painting in my home studio north of Winston-Salem brings me satisfaction. I have taken various classes at Salem College, Forsyth Technical School, Sawtooth Center for Visual Art, Art of the Carolina workshopsand with other artists in the area.

I am a member of The Muddy River Art Association, The Carolina Painters’ Guild,Art For Art’s Sake. I also enjoy painting weekly with the PoloPainters.

My favorite style is Impressionism and some of my influences are Claude Monet, Childe Hassam, and Richard Schmid. My paintings are displayed at the Red Dog Gallery, Frame It and various locations in Winston-Salem, NC.
