I have very secretly seen myself as an artist since I was a small child. I always knew my creativity would dominate my life and in this final third I am all in! Although it’s been quite the leap to go from being an executive for a Fortune 200 company to the world of art, I have never once looked back.
I was blessed by a stroke that left me blind in one eye a few years ago. Funny how it made me see things differently and have an even greater desire to paint the world from this unique perspective.
I discovered my favorite juicy medium when I first opened a jar of cold wax and mixed it with oil. It was like painting with yummy canned frosting! The many layers that I apply, then intuitively scrape away, always reveals beautiful surprises underneath. So much like life.
The stuff that we may have layered on and covered up make us the unique individuals that we are. If we dare peel some layers away, our colorful gifts are there in all their glory. My paintings are SoulScapes.
Since jumping into painting 100% in my 60s, I have been fortunate enough to be included and featured in many shows, and won more awards than I could have dreamed. I am pleased to be represented by galleries in Dallas, Santa Fe, Farmington, NM, Crested Butte, Co, and Watkins Glenn, N.Y.
