My life as a artist has been a total transformation to a new life – a metamorphosis that has been a true blessing and exciting journey. This journey began after watching so many people that I love succumb to cancer and old age. I did not want to waste a moment of my life and realized that I absolutely love immersing myself in a canvas of oils, pastels, acrylic and charcoal, creating a work of art from my heart.
My inspiration is the world in which we live. There are so many beautiful and unique people, animals, flowers and scenes that I am never at a loss as to what to paint. As I paint, I want to see these images in a new way, with vibrant colors and textures. Using soft pastels is a way to bring these colors to life and oils bring the texture and richness to the canvas that I so love.
As I am painting, I get lost in the serenity of creating something beautiful that will last for generations. It brings great joy and satisfaction when I reach the point in my peace when I see the very soul of the person or animal that I am painting. Each piece is an example of peace and relaxation. My goal for the viewer is to extend that peace and tranquility to them – as an escape to another time and place.
After so many years of raising children and caring for loved ones, I know that I am truly blessed to have found this hidden talent and I thank God. In all that I create, I will honor Him
