I received both undergrad and graduate degrees from North Carolina State University in Industrial Arts and taught in public schools for 31 years. During this time, I quietly pursued my personal art passion. I am now retired and a full time artist.
Most of my work is in soft pastels, oil pastel and acrylic. Painting with acrylic allows me to create texture and motions with the movement of my brush and the layering of color. Pastels allow me to become one with my art as I blend one color into another adding detail and breathing life into the painting with every touch of my hand.
Being in nature, kayaking, hiking trails, or walk along streets, is my way of healing, my time to meditate, my inspiration. Art is a means of expressing and sharing my experience. Life is a gift, an adventure. I document the adventures using my camera to record each scene. My pallet becomes the colors of my adventures which later become the inspiration for my art.
