I hope to capture happiness and wit and wonder with my brush strokes.
It makes me happy to layer complementary colors that create an emotion of their own. I thrive on color combinations and shapes that together produce form. I like to use water in my layering to show the viewer the process in the steps I take. I try to grant myself a certain freedom to enjoy the act of painting, rather than focusing on the end product.
Most of the time, I have no idea what my work will look like until it's finished. There is always a moment when I know I can't make it any better. Then, I call it complete. I paint because I have to, and I'm grateful I get to every day!
It’s so surreal that I am living my dream of being a professional artist. I now live in Riddleville, Georgia, with my wildlife-loving husband, four dogs…Toby, Skip, Luverne and George...and many chickens. I also have a studio cat named Barbara Ann and her kitten keeping me entertained. I moved into my first studio in January of 2015. My creative space is located in downtown Sandersville. I pass goats, cows and sheep on my way to work every morning. Anything that excites me has the potential to become a painting. I am currently focusing on animals and putting a funky spin on their natural beauty. I am so grateful for this creative journey!
