“After many years of procrastination, my creative adventure began with designing jewelry. But the urge to paint was strong even though I always considered my talent to be drawing, and thus strove for realistic images with a perfectionist’s zeal.
“I fell in love with the expressionist aspect of the art I saw in Santa Fe and Taos while traveling in New Mexico. A painting workshop with Stephen Kilborn in Taos on abstract watercolor, focusing on simplified shapes and flat planes of color, opened the door to a new way of painting for me – I had found my voice.
“Inspired by the landscape, I’ve continued to paint scenes of my travels, but am equally inspired by what I see in my own West Texas back yard. Plein Air painting is now a regular part of my art practice, in addition to my studio work.“Having recently made a move from the big city to living in the small community of Christoval outside of San Angelo, Texas, I am lucky enough to have my own studio located just out my back door, and visitors are welcome by appointment!
