HAC Member Since: 2005
Retiring from the field of education in 1998, I chose to take the journey into the world of the fine arts using watercolor as my choice of medium.Painting gives me a fresh and in-depth perspective while looking and people, places, objects and form. I enjoy painting whatever catches my eye-be it the color, subject matter, or design. The inspiration to paint comes from the continual challenge for personal and artistic growth. Our world is ever changing, and each painting is a record of a moment in time. Whether preserving a local landscape, recording my travels, or capturing an interesting composition, I enjoying sharing with the viewer my interpretation and style through each piece of art I create.Locally I have exhibited and won awards at the Redwood Art Association show, Humboldt Co. Fair, have shown at The Shipâ€™s Inn, Eureka, and was a partner in the â€œIrish Rootsâ€ show at the Ferndale Arts Gallery.I am a member of the Redwood Art Assn., Representational Art League and the Humboldt Arts Council.
