Artists Statement

I have been painting off and on for a number of years, starting with watercolors when my children were small. Over the years I have gravitated to using acrylics and a mixed media approach which I find allows me more flexibility. Since I retired from a career in nursing and Health Care Administration, having the freedom and privilege to do what I want,when I want and to enjoy what I am doing has become central to the way I choose to live my life. Working with mixed media, playing with abstraction and new materials is liberating and allows me to keep the "fun" in painting. 

I love playing with shapes, pattern, colour, line and perspective. The process of painting has become as important to me as the outcome, I can get lost in it for hours. It makes me happy seeing the response others have to my paintings. My goal is to have people stop and be intrigued by something about the painting whether it is the texture, pattern, content, the painting name or the story behind it.  I also like injecting a little whimsy or humor into a painting and love it when it makes someone laugh.
