Recently incorporating water soluble drawing pencils with watercolor sticks & oil sticks both on canvas and on Oleo paper. This has given her a natural freedom of expression only a solid paint stick can give. The use of these new tools to create allow for a drawing/painting expressive style with watercolors, gouache, egg tempra, pastels, oils; sculpting with clay and paper; and printmaking.
“Exploring landscape painting in the past with watercolors, gouache and egg tempra has been a very gratifying learning experience.” Realizing a major change in her work with these newer materials has been a revelation. The great illustrators turned fine artists, such as Hopper, O'Keeffe, Homer, Benton, Kollwitz, Cadmus, Bellows and many others have influenced and inspired her.
