I am often asked “What inspires you?” To be honest, many different subjects inspire me at different times. When painting or drawing someone’s pet, it’s the expression in their eyes that reflects their essence and is most meaningful. Other times it’s the way light and shadow describe a subject - which can be just about anything - flowers, animals, shadows on an old wall or a backlit form.
Color is also inspirational and exciting-especially complementary colors used effectively in a composition.
I like to create stories, with more than one level of meaning, when I paint. I love to hear that each individual sees something different when viewing my work.
Another question I am often asked is “What is your favorite medium?” The answer is simply, whichever one I am currently using! I let the subject “tell me” what it wants and how to approach the composition. If you have looked through my Galleries you will notice that I use Colored Pencils, Watercolors, Oils, Pen & Ink, Graphite and Acrylics. I’m sure that’s not a complete list, either!
Once I had graduated with a BA Degree in Graphic Design & Illustration, I began a multi-layered career using all of those skills and learning more along the way. I have taught in schools as well as privately and in my own gallery. I have helped start Art-centered organizations in the towns and communities where I have lived to promote The Arts. Most recently, I collaborated with a few friends to create a new District Chapter of the Colored Pencil Society of America, of which I find myself the inaugural President!
