I am a novice, self-taught, abstract artist. My professional background is in computers and elementary education. While I do not have a formal art education, I believe my experiences in both the business world and the classroom have helped form the artist I am presently.
My inspiration is the encouragement of my family, the beauty of God’s creation I admire each day, and my desire to paint. I love the mixing of colors and the freedom to explore outside the box. I learn something new from each piece. Rarely have my paintings ended up the way I envisioned them in my head originally! That is the exciting part, starting out in one direction and during the course of the painting, being taken in another.
I work with acrylics and watercolors. I have not yet tried oils....I think I am intimidated by them! LOL!
In addition to my paintings, I make hand painted note/greeting cards!
I hope you will enjoy my paintings/cards, as much as I have creating them!
