"City Girl Turned Country Girl and Back to the City Again...Lovin' Every Minute!" Visual Arts Provide A Great Source Of Joy In My Life. The Use Of Bold, Bright and Vivid Colour Is What makes My Work Memorable and Visually Exciting. My preferred medium is acrylic paint. Early on my work had a Folk Art influence, which is now evolving into a new style incorporating textured canvas and a finer hand.
Creating provides me with a wonderful energy. Whether I am out in the garden sketching, sitting with a paintbrush in my hand in front of an easel, or on the road with my camera capturing beautiful photos, I am always looking for special ways to share what I see. The world that we live in is filled with the great beauty of nature. The peace that I feel when out taking photos, drawing or painting provides me with inspiration. I take that inspiration and use it to create art that is a reflection of that beauty.
My photography, art, writing and some graphic design work have appeared in national publications such as; "Arts & Crafts Homes and The Revival Magazine", "Style 1900 Magazine", "American Bungalow Magazine", "Wisconsin Trails Magazine", "Cottages and Bungalows Magazine", local news publications, Chamber Books, Tourism Guides, and more.
