Imagine Me

I create my art to be basic enough so that anyone can relate but personal enough to have a story and a purpose. The influence of over 30 years of working with children has touched all parts of my life including my art. By challenging children to discover art through imagination and to be bold about their choices, I have embraced that task myself.

When I see contemporary impressionists work I am inspired to experiment with my own projects to create what I see and feel. To me art is a way to express and explore my thoughts and feelings in a tactile way. I use many combinations of mediums that may include ink washes, thick pastes, gels, or pastels. I use many no brush application methods to show depth and texture. The process is as important to me as the finished piece. Sometimes I incorporate wire and found items as part of the work.

My 3D work is mostly made up of wire and found items. When I cover the wire it is mostly with acrylic skins and paper pulp but I like to leave the wire exposed much of the time. These works can be as small as a few inches to about 4 feet. Trees and animals are often a subject for my wire work because they are both static and in motion at the same time with lots of textures that wire can imitate.

Recently, I helped a group of school age students work on an underwater project and that lead me to explore this in my own art. I researched creatures of the deep and became intrigued by the unique qualities that they possess. This recent body of work includes charcoal drawings, paintings, mixed media and sculpture.
