From my earliest memories I have always wanted to be an artist. I enjoyed seeing artists at work wondering how in the world they did that. I have always wondered how I could as well. I have many experiences in the corporate world and in the military. Within my endeavors around these United States, I realized the positions I have accomplished by trade were definitely based on my desire to create and be creative. Whether it was in desktop publishing, the printing industry, or custom framing, anything I could do, I have put myself around art, soaking it all in for many years. When I was in Real Estate it was as if I were visiting art museums as I previewed several houses for sale a week. Staging houses to show for sell was certainly an education as well as entertaining.
Of course, being a true artist took a back seat to being in a career, being a wife, and mother, and at times the only bread winner. All my experiences have certainly inspired my ambition to pursue art with a passion. About five years ago, I decided I couldn’t contain this passion any longer. I would actually imagine finished work of art in my thoughts. Everything I thought of and looked at was in danger of being put on canvas. I started out with acrylics using self teaching techniques: books, videos movies and anything I could get my hands on. I studied every detail of different paintings and realized I love to manipulate color and strive to give some mystery to any art piece I create.
