Traditional – Realism describes my painting style. From a distance all of my paintings look “real” but up close you will see an illusion of reality created by using the compositional skills of color, tone, line, value, and lighting to make the most of the subjects in each painting.
Through the use of vivid color and the elements of design and composition, “I express how I see and how I feel about life. My work reflects my varied interests from landscapes to figures.
In the late 1990’s I began to pursue formal training and mentoring in art. As a result of encouragement by mentors and teachers, I began to take workshops and increased my choice in mediums to include watercolor, pastel, and oil.
Education and Training:
My education and training have included workshops and courses at the Drawing Studio in Tucson Arizona, the Mesa Center for the Arts in Mesa, Arizona, the Scottsdale Artists School in Scottsdale Arizona, and Dakota Art Pastel in Mount Vernon, Washington. I also take private lessons from artists I admire. My main emphasis is on design, composition, and structure.
Location(s):
My studios located at 26822 Oraibi Drive in Buckeye, Arizona. I share this lovely space with my husband Jerry.
