art is a personal endeavor. it is influenced by life experiences that are as unique to each individual as are the snowflakes of winter.
“I have always been an artist……always. I was inspired as a young girl to be creative by growing up in a creative home. This environment included the visual arts as well as writing and music. There was nothing formal in this education. It was simply a place of appreciation for expression.
I was interested in art….from auguste renior and edgar degas to edouard vuillard and paul klee. I loved poetry by emily dickenson and robert frost. I was melancholy while listening to pachellbel canon and swooned over louis armstrong.
Today, I paint what I remember from long ago and yesterday…..passing moments that drew me in with exquisite color or the light beneath a cloud……where the horizon meets the sky.
I am about quietness and order…..laughing and contentment…..faith and sentimentality. i am about remembering and gathering my life’s moments and interpreting them on canvas.”
