My art has evolved through several stages, which have generally paralleled my place of residence and travel. I have lived in California, Texas, Wyoming and Hawaii. The dominate force has been my impression and emotional response to these varied surroundings.
My production relies on a technique and approach which springs from a woman’s viewpoint, emotion and the relationship to her surroundings. This is revealed in the subject choice, use of chosen medium, as well as, what is to be communicated to the viewer. I work in oil, watercolor and egg tempera depending on what is to be conveyed.
Spending many years in North San Diego County I was able to paint on locations where early California Artists worked; and which has not changed that much. I was also very fortunate in my early art training to study with advocates of the California style of painting.
