It all started with coloring books! I had hundreds of them as a child and loved to color. I remember being obsessed with finding just the right color crayon and remember always to color in the lines! Even at a young age, I had no idea that right brain creativity would be a part of my life forever.
By age 12, I was introduced to oil painting. Without the aid of pre-drawn lines, I created my own outlines before painting. I soon realized this was not so easy! I practiced nearly everyday with both oils and later watercolors until I was satisfied with my work. With little experience, this process often took days and sometimes weeks to complete a single painting.
Although my career path has taken many twists and turns, I have dedicated my work to graphic design for both print media and websites for the past 10 years. As a self-taught Photoshop designer, I have created thousands of digital designs and photographic composites, many of which have been used in my graphic design projects.
I now create my own contemporary wall art. The process involves scanning hand-drawn outlines into my computer and then "painting" with my mouse. I create modern/abstracts, florials, lifestyle, landscapes/seascapes and nature designs into "new media" works of art. Photography images are turned into photo-graphics.
The completed art is then printed on special papers or canvas, The inks, papers and canvas are all of archival quality to ensure color preservation and clarity. Paper prints are matted and can be framed. Canvas prints are stretched and gallery mounted. Canvas framing is also available. Becaise each piece is saved as a digital file, it can be printed in various sizes and in multiples on demand.
For me, art is always evolving and I love what I do. I am continually expanding my understanding with each piece I produce.
