Hello and welcome to my website. I consider myself an artistic explorer discovering different media, techniques and styles. When there is a technique and media I like, I develop a series. While I may eventually move on to something new, additions to the series appear occasionally like old friends.
Photography was my first visual art developed through my degree from the Rochester Institute of Technology. Painting is more immediate though and I like being immersed in the media which is often evident from the paint on my clothes! I started with watercolor and now also paint with acrylics.
I like repeating patterns, especially those caused by strong light and shadow. The repeating patterns seem to be a metaphor for life since the rhythm of our lives is shaped by our repeating behavior patterns. Shapes and how they relate to each other also interest me. After all, life is all about relationships.
Originally from the Midwest, I feel lucky to be living in Albuquerque with a such a vibrant art community. My volunteer time with Rainbow Artists, the Rio Grande Art Association, and the Yucca Branch of the National League of American Pen Women gives me community support and allows me to help other artists.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you continue to follow my artistic journey. Just click the newsletter link below to keep up to date monthly with my new creations.
