I love to work with color. For example Vivid and bold colors are my purposes in my work. I use acrylics, and gouache paints as well as color pencil and black pen.

I am a visual artist which means I like to paint things that are real to the eye. I live with story ideas and try to make them reality.

I only discovered my abilities in art late in life, but I have a passion for it now. I went to Johnson State College in Vermont and graduated with a BA, I continued to School Of Visual Arts in NYC. I finally finished everything in 1990 with a BFA in Fine Art.

After college, I struggled for many years to find a place in my field. I worked in an art Gallery in Vermont for awhile, and did odd jobs for families. When I ran out of opportunities, I learned the computer and found a job to make ends meat.

A few years ago, I started to draw again and I am happy that I picked up the brush once more. I didn’t realize how much I missed it. Finding places like Redbubble, greatly inspired me to continue. Today I am glad that I returned to my art. It is something I missed and regret I ever gave up in life. I was greatly discouraged when I stopped working from negative feedback. Now I should never let peoples discouragement stop me. If you love something, never give it up. Maybe give yourself a break but never quit.

On Top Of The Alps

When I joined Red Bubble, I never new what would happen here. I have been here now for a year, and have had the chance to see so much wonderful art work and photography. It has so inspired me to continue my own journey in creativity. / For many years, I laid my brushes and pens in a locked box untouched and unused. I thought it was just a waste of time and nothing mattered about it anymore. Seems…
