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.

I Need a New Host or Two

Do you do most of your work in the wee wee hours? If so, I’d love to hand the reins of Insomniacs and Other Night Crawlers over to you. Since I started working, I barely even qualify to be in the group, much less host it, and I am pretty busy with my other groups. Time to let go of one. / It’s not a difficult or large group but you do have to moderate it – the only real rule is…
