Thank you for giving me this opportunity to introduce myself to you. I started drawing as a young child and have been painting for over 30 years. I loved to draw and loved the special attention being able to draw gave me.. My family vacationed in Northern Wisconsin every year and I spent my time sketching and painting the lakes, trees and wildlife in watercolor. As a young mom, I painted with my children. I would set my work up on the dining room table and set them up around me. They would paint, and I would paint. One of my children has artistic talent (she is a teacher now). Watercolor is done with several layers of wash. Sometimes I would put down a layer.do some house work and then put down another layer as I rushed through the dining room. During that time, I started doing portraits of my own children and then of my friends children. I showed and sold my work through small local shops, art and craft fairs, word of mouth, and party plan. My work has been juried into many regional arts and crafts shows. I have studied art at a local college and have attended several day long seminars with many nationally known artists. I also took a series of classes with Wayne Gunness, a well know local watercolor artist whom I give credit for my traditional transparent watercolor style of painting. I have studied extensively on my own and most of what I know is from trial and error. It can be a frustrating way to learn, but you certainly remember your lessons! I have also taught children in my home and adults at the YWCA and at a local studio setting. I discovered folk art and country decorating while working in a country furniture store. This new love added a new dimension and direction to my work. I love to create art that will be used by people both functionally and as part of their decorating. I am enjoying using water media in a mixed media technique that allows for the texture of acrylic, brightness of oils, and spontaneity of watercolor. I have been using the internet to show and sell my work for the past four years now and truly believe that this is the way to go for artists. It is a great medium and brings a huge audience to artists. I have my studio site and also a craft mall. I have sold many works over ebay and other auction sites. Over the years when life would take me in directions away from my art, it is what I always had. It is what was truly mine and part of me. It is what helped bring me back to after my divorce, and after my breast cancer. When I find myself scattered in many directions, it is usually the art that is missing. .
I believe that creating is a natural urge and God given. Creating art is something that all children do, and then as they grow, for what ever reason, forget how. When we recapture the fun and excitement of creating..we are truly in the moment. We don't worry about what happened yesterday or what may happen tomorrow. It is truly a relaxing and centering activity. I enjoy the end product of my art. The paintings are very important to me, but so is the process.
