New Studio

” I would like to paint the way a bird sings” Claude Monet



A dedicated space for creating art has been a dream of mine for 40 years. It is curious how we can travel through life avoiding what is in our hearts. In the last three years, I have opened many doors and found the dream alive and waiting. My new studio became a reality this fall. Now I can spread out, work on several pieces at a time, and let the story unfold.

Latest Mixed Media Commission

The Bluebird's Bouquet

The Bluebird’s Bouquet

Hello Art Friends!

Its been some time since my last blog. I have been dealing with the death of my father and care of my mother which has reset my reality but has also brought many blessings. Painting everyday has helped center my world and kept my inner voice alive.

The Bluebird’s Bouquet is my latest mixed media work created with many acrylic layers and constructed hand painted paper elements. It grew out of the sky first with a tone on tone sweet pea vine growing into the blue. A bird often appears in my work and this fellow became the creator of the bouquet.

My largest work to date at 30×30 inches will be hanging in my good friends home as a birthday present commission from husband to wife. Have a look at some details from the painting. Enjoy!
