Printmaking

I went back to study printmaking at College of the Canyons under the direction of Master Printmaker Jim Lorigan in 2012. In 2017 I purchased my own little Press and other printmaking tools. I use Akua inks which are soy based and better for the environment than oil based paints. I do love some aspects of oil based but for a home studio I find the less mess and easy clean up preferred of water based inks.

Live Painting

I love to do live painting at galleries and event shows. It's such a challenge. I never know exactly what to expect. The music and vibe can affect the painting. It's a real lesson in letting go and going with the flow.

Tiny Dancers 2012

These little paintings are fun to create. I choose to make several small paintings as they seem to be what is selling the past few years. I used only Cyan, Magenta and Yellow in thin layers of glaze. Using my technique of building the background gesso to create a unique texture. One of the paintings, Rose I used black and red to create a darker emotional feel.

My Profession: Art
About my work:
I am about texture and color. I want the viewer to wonder how it was done then get lost in the color or the story. Then realize all of the color changes and balance and be left wondering.
Art is my soul. I can not explain where it comes from it just flows. I try not to be too structured in the final process of painting.
College and I did not work out well. I did not know I had a choice of what scholarship to accept. I was expected to and took an athletic one. I wanted the art one. It wasn't til many years later that my true self sneaked out and I did a spiritual Healing Light collection in the late 80's early 90's. I was fortunate to sell nearly all of the works and do a couple of commissions. Then life interrupted and now I have found myself again and I'm not letting her go. Art, Music, Creating is my world now for as long as I am able.
Past Clients and Projects include:
Private Commissions.
