After 34 years I went back to my first love , art. For the past 14 years, I have been working primarily with Colored Pencils, Prismacolor and Derwent. Many layers are done to create the depth and detail I look for. Texture, light, shadow, movement and a feeling for the subject are really what inspire me in my work. It is a long process to create each painting, but when all these elements come together, the end result s always rewarding. When I create a piece of work that people want to touch, it is a special moment.
Over the past several years,, I have expanded my horizon by incorporating other mediums, such as watercolor, gouache, acrylic, charcoal, ink and pastel, which I feel has enhanced by work as an artist. Though I work primarily on portraits, I love working from subjects that I see in my own surroundings, surroundings that capture my attention. The hope is that I will capture what I feel and share it through my art.
