At my soul I am an oil painter, however my creative heart beats toward understanding the right media for the subjects I explore. I love the creative process and tend toward entering areas often outside my comfort zones. I prefer to use recycle materials with new materials. I also enjoy using old world techniques with updates to produce a work. Some of the work I do is emotionally intense, so I work on multiple projects that allow me to expand outside the ranges of intensity. For me the drive is the creative act found in expressing imagery in our human experience. Some artist express art in beauty, others push boundaries, me, I lost my real voice as a child who was molested by an uncle. I lost my voice again when art was taken from me as a child. I lost my voice when I lost my first child, I lost my voice as I choose to be a responsible voice for the child who is now the best daughter in the world and my muse. Now over a half century later my voice is seeking once again to explore the impossible and record the experiences, to engage myself with what is just beyond our senses.

Hi and thank you so much for the comments you made on my work. It was a bit of a challenge working on a more emotional level - not something I am used to doing. I was drawn to your profile picture when I first saw it, and I love the sensitivity of your work. All the best with your sketchbooks!
