I have had a lifelong passion for art. Whether painting, drawing, collecting other artists’ work, or visiting museums and galleries, art has been a significant part of my life. As a young girl, I would spend hours painting and drawing. As a high school student, I earned an art scholarship. I attended college majoring in Fine Arts with a concentration in Graphic Design. I have worked for many years as a graphic designer, ensconced in a life of technology and marketing. My works are a combination of all the visual iconography I love interesting lines, shapes, repeating patterns, and beautiful colors, as well as rich textures. THE PROCESS My sketchbook is always close by, so I usually begin a painting using a sketch I’ve drawn as my starting point. I build up layers of paint and collage to create a textured surface. I continue making marks, drawing shapes adding more collage elements until I begin to see interesting areas of composition. The process becomes intuitive, “happy accidents” are the goal! My works are signed and titled on the back. I paint on gallerywrap canvas, frame not required.
