In High School art I was pushed to extend myself and try mediums that were unfamiliar to me. I still adhere to that philosophy.
When I look at the world around me I see colors and vibrancy that make me want to record my interpretation of those visions .Throughout my journey I have used many media including pottery, watercolors, and weaving. Each one has given me a different perspective of my talents and interests. The pottery gave me a sense of fulfillment. Watercolor felt too confined a process for me. Weaving is tactile and gives me a sense of comfort .However acrylic is the medium that allows me the most artistic pleasure.
Most of my artistic life has been the pursuit of art for myself. I enjoy gifting pieces to friends and family. I derive pleasure from the satisfaction that these people have indicated they receive from those works. Now that I have retired from my career in elementary education I have the time to belong to other artistic organizations and associate more with fellow artists.
