In all my art I strive to create what has meaning and speaks to my heart
and spirit. The emotional connection becomes my inspiration. Taking
many forms, I love my art to tell a story, to capture a moment in time.
Like many artists, I am fascinated with the color of light, the darkest
darks against the lightest lights, the glow of light and shadow in every
type of setting. To create art that sings and moves the heart to linger
awhile is a continual pull. It keeps me striving to grow as an artist.
My husband, Ron, and I live in rural Vicksburg, MI where I have my studio.
The area we live and our travels offer many wonderful opportunities to
take reference photos for my studio work and painting en plein air.
Working from life has had a significant impact in how I see form and the
color of light and shadow. For now, I am most drawn to work in pastel,
colored pencil, Conte Crayon and charcoal. As I continue to grow as an
artist, it is a joy to share my creative process with others.
