As a self taught Artist and Photographer I attend numerous workshops and seminars to stay current and informed in both photography and abstract art. I am an active participant in the Franklin Gallery where my art and photography is on display, and I belong to the Artisans of St. James.
Before this career I retired from a 30 year career in the investment field - where creativity was essential in running my own business.
I love the merging of paints, inks and other mediums to form a subject appealing to the senses.
In photography my mission is to create the essence of the subject.
As you enjoy my work, I hope that you find it as meditative and appealing to the senses as I do.
It is from my vast travel experiences that I drawn the greatest inspiration, and I have found art to be by far the most meditative and calming experience.
My goal as an artist is to bring to others the ability to be free of the "what is it" and to a place that shouts "oh my, aren't those colors and movement fascinating"; to intriguing "I wonder how she does that"?
This comes from my passion for all things inspirational in Nature - whether photographing birds, flowers or anything aquatic (beaches/waterfalls). I use nature as my creative source and influence for my art. While nature drives some of my artwork, the movement of paints, resin and inks (also known as fluid art) fascinates me. This confluence of mediums brings endless hours of experimentation.
I have been fortunate to have been inspired by worldwide experiences which have given me a wonderful opportunity to see art expressed thru the eyes and talent of many others.
