Happy to be here !!! Looks like a great site... I have been artistic all of my life and finally retired and moved to cottage country where I can paint and create each day... I have my own art studio now and enjoy acrylics and mixed media art. I am also a knitter and knit very intricate lace shawls (adding beads to some of them) and socks, and am an avid reader. Love walks in the woods or by the water with my dog and meeting some great folks here.
The art is created to music and I love exploring new techniques and the actual creation of the art with the colour is the most important to me... as a lot of my work is from my imagination and I often end up with something completely different than what I originally intended. A lot of the time I go "into the zone" where the painting takes over and decides what it wants to be. The outcome depends on my mood and the music. I listen to a lot of Alan Parsons Project and the music from GLEE and classical Strauss waltzes from the Viennese orchestra.
I paint acrylic abstracts, florals, landscapes, figurative and fantasy art on canvas or board and LOVE creating mixed media art - that is my favourite... Hope you like it too!!
I am a self representing artist on EBSQ and a member of Artists in Canada, the Huronia Art Foundation and the Muskoka Arts and my work can be found in galleries and homes in Canada, the United States, the UK and New Zealand. I do have originals for sale, as well as reproductions, prints, cards and gifts at my websites - Please contact me or visit my sites to see my work - thank you!!
and am working on my Etsy shop trying to get things printed up to offer there too! It is fun to be able to offer art this way and sell online and meet other creative people and look forward to making many new friends here and seeing all of your art ... am trying to keep up with it all but spend a lot of time in the studio so email me if you have any questions about my art. Thank you - Have a creative day!
