"To love beauty is to see light"
- Victor Hugo
Flowers brighten our spirits and elevate our moods. They are part of every celebration, and given for every occasion. My love and enjoyment of flowers is my inspiration.
A film on the life and works of Michelangelo ignited my passion for art. Following art instruction, I was hooked, drawing in every spare moment I could find! Subsequently, I attended design school, furthering my love of art and design.
I have worked in a number of different mediums in the past, creating a variety of art. Mediums I have especially enjoyed are pencil and colored pencil, working with silver to create jewelry, designing and hand painting tee-shirts, as well as working with dyes and resist to create hand-dyed silk scarves.
Today my focus is painting on canvas in the acrylic medium.
The undeniable beauty of flowers makes them a favorite painting subject of mine. I am inspired by the beautiful lines, and vibrant colors of flowers, and find that the acrylic medium is especially well-suited to that pursuit.
My paintings are a reflection of something I have seen and felt, and been moved to capture and share. Nature, in all it's striking beauty, intensity of color and multitudinous intricacies of design, is an endless source of inspiration.
"Art washes away from the soul
the dust of everyday life."
