This show is like a journey. A trip from one medium to the next and one style to the next and how each one influenced the other. My drawings show up in my watercolor paintings, then the colours in those paintings will show up in my acrylic paint.
My paintings make me happy. They make me smile, bring brightness and colour into my world. I hope this show brings some fun and colour into your day as well.
Even though I have been creating art for over 30 years this is my very first Solo show and I couldn’t be more excited. Thank you to the Nipawin Art Club for the opportunity and I hope that you enjoy my work.
WHIMSICAL - playfully quaint or fanciful, especially in an appealing and amusing way.
Several Summer Retreats are planned at my studio near Nipawin, SK.
I live in two very unique, inspirational places. I spend the spring, summer and fall in Canada where we have 120 acres in the Boreal Forest, on the bank of the Saskatchewan River. Winter is spent in the Rio Grande Valley - just a few miles from the Gulf of Mexico in Texas, USA.
I don't stick to one medium in my art. So I was thrilled when the term MIXED MEDIA ARTIST started to be popular since I have been that for over thirty years. I use paint, watercolours, pens, pencils, Inktense, markers, collage, stitching, free motion quilting and have even been known to smash a few perfectly good ceramic tiles up into little pieces all in the name of "Artfulness"
This website will show you a good example of all my past work and more importantly what I'm working on at the moment. I look forward to showing you my art and if you get the chance to come to my workshops, I look forward to sharing my knowledge, home and studio spaces with you as well.
