Hello and thank you so much for your interest in me and
my art. One of the reasons I chose this theme for my site is because the
image above reminds me of a Tree of Life. Creating art truly has become a
passion for me. It is joyful and life-giving.
I've admired art much of my life and sold framed art as an interior decorator.
However I never created much art ... until moving to western Nevada County,
California. Here in our incredible arts community, a few generous teachers
greatly encouraged me and saw some innate ability in me before I did!
Without their support, I probably would not be an artist today.
So special sincere thanks go to Lil, Denise, Eileen and especially EJ Gold.
I am also most appreciate of Kath for introducing me to the medium of
alcohol ink (AI). I've become quite obsessed with it!
Mostly, I am self-taught, or perhaps led by mysterious angels!
It is so gratifying that people enjoy and also purchase my art. Private
residences in California – Santa Barbara, Grass Valley, Nevada City, Davis, Santa
Paula, Oak Park and Los Gatos – as well as Palm Beach, Florida, Richmond Hill, Ontario, Somerset, New Jersey, Dallas, Texas, and Bellevue, Washington display some of my “Joyful Art Expressions.” It has also been selected to display during the 2015 Wild and Scenic Film Festival.
Before moving to Grass Valley, CA, I had always lived in large cities.
It is such a treat to live where the pace is much slower and the natural
beauty abounds in each season. Our local arts community is amazing
and thriving. "Nevada County has more artists per capita than any county in California," per http://www.sierraculture.com/foodwineart/art/nevada-
Much of my life’s work has been in social work or Information Technology.
I am so grateful that today I can spend much of my time creating art. What a relief to use my right brain more often!
That seems like more than enough history. You are most likely here to see
