Since retiring from a career in real estate I have had the opportunity to pursue art and I have found painting is my passion. It gives me so much joy. To paint my vision I experiment with color and texture. The possibilities are limitless when I can combine acrylics, watercolor, inks, mediums and found objects. The experimentation is fun and the end result can be exciting or a complete mess! When I begin a painting I usually do not have a plan for the finished piece. I begin to layer the paint there are usually several layers in a painting. Some of the first layers will show through to the last layer. The painting itself usually tells me when I am finished with it.
Most of my paintings are abstract or non representational. I love to travel and take lots of pictures. I use these pictures and my memories of things I have seen to inspire my work. I continue taking workshops to explore new techniques and to expand my expertise in creating new art.
God, and his son Christ Jesus have meant so much to me and I have tried to live my life according to 1 Peter 4:10. Each one should use whatever gift he received to serve others, faithfully, administering God’s grace in its various forms.
