Tell us about yourself?
Whether I am using water media or dry media, COLOR satisfies my soul! I paint for my personal joy inspired by the beauty that surrounds us all, inside and out. I’m always learning and evolving. I enjoy planning and creating as much as embracing creative opportunities and exploring the unexpected. My style is eclectic and that makes me happy.
My process for art making can also be meditative and cerebral. I have always been very shy, but in a roomful of artists I soar. I’m a very social creative. I love to be surrounded by other artists and find so much inspiration and friendship. I’m always thinking about what is new, next, different and exciting. I’m definitely not standing still.
I am an artist and adult art educator. I get as much joy out of teaching as I do art making. I have been painting and teaching weekly from my home studio in Strasburg since 1993. I also teach regional workshops and retreats for local art groups. I am uniquely qualified with a Master’s in Art Education and as a Certified Decorative Artist.
What is your medium(s) of choice?
I am currently using acrylic, watercolor, soft pastel and colored pencil and mixed media. I love to paint florals, landscapes, still life, people, animals, whimsy, botanical, decorative, stroke work, folk art and storytelling.
Do you offer private lessons/classes?
I teach beginner and intermediate artists in acrylics, watercolor, pastel and colored pencil. My goal is to help each artist to create their own artworks in the styles and mediums they choose. I teach a couple of small weekly classes in my Strasburg studio for students who attend regularly. I teach private lessons in your home or my studio. I also teach in Lake Frederick for members.
