Original Fine Art
Drawing is something I cannot live without...natural and expressive. Finding various mediums of expression, painting in watercolors, gouache, egg tempra, pastels, oils; sculpting with clay and paper; and printmaking. Recently incorporating drawing with watercolor/oil sticks both on canvas and on Oleo paper. This has allowed a freedom of expression only a solid paint/oil stick can give. Exploring landscape painting in the past with watercolors, gouache and egg tempra has been a very gratifying learning experience. Realizing a major change in my work with these newer materials has been a revelation! The great illustrators turned fine artists, such as Hopper, O'Keeffe, Homer, Benton, Kolwitz, Cadmus, Bellows and many others have influenced and inspired me."
