Art has played a part in my life ever since I was a very small child. Both of my parents are artists, so a sense of aesthetics has always been present in my surroundings. Art supplies were always made available to me, and as a child, I spent countless hours filling memo pads with fantastic visual stories.
In recent years, I have been attempting to recapture the unbridled imagination of my youth, becoming re-inspired by the iconic creatures and themes of the stories in those memo pads. There is often an undercurrent of darkness in my images, which may be perceived as a cynicism borne of adulthood; however, there are many dark themes in my childhood art as well. I believe that expression of life experience is ageless.
I fluctuate between several mediums. I use acrylic paint for most of my larger works. Watercolor is my medium of choice for smaller pieces and also for more technical work that I do to keep my skills honed. Fabric is another form of expression, and although I do make traditional quilts, I am experimenting more with using fabric as a means of expressing my main creative message. Printmaking is another love that I don’t get to do as often as I’d like.
I have lately rediscovered my love for taking pictures. I am not a Photographer, as such – I spend very little time thinking about or setting up shots. I just click and click at whatever strikes my fancy and looks interesting in the viewfinder. I love it when I look at my resulting shots and find gems.
