I’m an accidental artist.
I began my study of art in Palm Springs, CA when my husband won a series of art lessons at a charity auction. At fifty years of age, I began taking art classes with Master Art Teacher Jayne Behman whose gallery/studio was also in Palm Springs. Even today I think Jayne tricked me into becoming an artist by pointing out that ‘I needed to look at the quality of the work I was doing.’
When I moved to Huntington Beach, CA in 2002 I found my next Master art teacher and a soon to become Mentor to me, BJ Wilson. BJ’s constant encouragement and Mentorship furthered my belief that ‘Yes, I am an artist.’
I call myself an experimental artist, as I like to mix and invent media and ways of working with them. I work in long series based on subject matter and medium. My garden series which has been in process for the last year, features vibrant colors of ink on Duralar.
Working on my art full time, day and night, I strive to challenge the viewer. I’m happiest when asked ‘How did you do that or is that oil or is that water color?’
Believing that art is a form of communication, I feel that the work is not complete until it arrives at the home of someone who sees it as theirs. Then I believe the piece takes on a life of its own. I’m especially surprised and amazed by the transition when I’m invited to see one of my creations in a new home.
My work has been exhibited throughout the United States and in Sweden, Italy, France and the UAE. It appears in personal and business collections, as well as public art projects and museum collections. Currently I am teaching and giving workshops in art to share what I have learned and to help others discover their talent.
