Art has always been a part of my life, Since I’ve been here in Cheyenne, I’ve had the opportunity to work with some very fine regional artists and teachers who have sparked an interest in developing my art in the line of pastel. The vibrant color and forgiving nature of pastel makes it fun to use and gives me a feeling of joy as I paint. My background includes not only visual art, but also performance art. The artistic concepts transcend the various disciplines even though the application varies. I find this challenging and exciting. Currently, my interest is taking me to painting still-life and scenery.. I’m even trying my hand at some NYC scenes.
Creating a visual image, a communication that evokes positive emotion – first for me and then others, is what art means to me. It is the personal expression of fleeting thought, whimsy, a smile, a beautiful day. Training with notable regional artists have enhanced my desire for creating in pastel. My inspiration comes from workshops, travel and other artists as I discover my visual voice. You will find my paintings are moving to be a bit more impressionistic, as I strive to simplify images as I simplify life.
