Ready to Hang

All of my art is an act of gratitude for the gift of sight. Painting is a deepening of the act of seeing. It joins what I see with the joy in my soul. I usually set a time limit to challenge myself to work quickly so that I don't overwork the details. Praise music and the Rosary are my acoustic accompaniment. This piece celebrates a moment of answered prayer in a cemetery near Onomea Bay, Hawaii. The Virgin Mary was assuring me that I would continue to see the beauty around me.

As a lifetime artist, my gift has carried me through doldrums, heartbreak, joy and celebration. As I have returned to doing art everyday, my soul is being strengthened and healed of wounds and vices. With gratitude for the opportunity to give the gift of healing and joy, I offer my original pieces to you. My undergraduate degree is in art from the University of Southern Indiana. From 5th to 9th grades, I studied watercolor with Judy Wengrovitz, an amazing teacher and artist. My style is influenced by my favorite artists: Whistler, Winslow Homer, Sargent, Monet, El Greco, Sorolla, and many others. Ideas come to me as I see places or as visions when I am praying. I create sketches and notes and import photos to use as idea bases using an app called Notability. Then I get to work. Usually music of praise or the rosary is on in the background, but I find that I do not directly hear them. In addition, time is suspended. Timers remind me to eat or to stop at a certain time to fulfill obligations. Painting is a time to commune with another reality.
