I have always enjoyed being creative and expressing myself with colors and shapes. As a young child, and into beginning adulthood, I would sit for hours quietly making art with abstract shapes, using my giant set of magic markers. This is one of my magic marker abstracts from many years ago:
Eventually, I expanded my art making media choices to include watercolor, pastels and oil paint and began sketching and painting from life. My work has become representational and has been influenced by my early abstracts. I enjoy the opportunity to express form, light, depth, and movement through various art media. Currently, I am finding myself painting mostly in either oil or watercolor.
