Ready to Hang
I'm drawn to the beauty and simplicity of poppies. My goal was to capture the grace of and light play on this flower.
Art has been an important part of my life from early childhood on. My first official art assignment at age 14 was to create window displays for my hometown library. I realized from that early age, that art was a very important part of my being. After attending Parson's School of Design in New York my artistic and graphic design skills flourished while owning a graphic design business for over twenty-five years. 1999 watercolor workshops and painting classes reawakened my drive to interpret people, places and things and opened the door to my current life as a fine artist. I interpret the world around me to create a feeling, rather than a realistic representation. Every day something is added to my being that affects my mood, psyche, and state of mind. I keep changing. Sometimes I express myself with images. Sometimes with words. Memories are triggered, feelings surface. Life is a wonderful place to be as the sum total of me keeps growing.
