"Then & Now", The National Association of Women Artists' Show at the Monmouth Museum in Lincroft, New Jersey, April-May 15, 2022.  Pictured here is "Race Point #1", Cape Cod.  This a "juried in" showing of approximately 63 works of art (selected from 260 submissions) that also include 15 works dating between 1915-1980.  Always proud to be a part of the NAWA family of extraordinary women artists' showing at the beautiful Monmouth Museum.  Did you know the National Association of Women Artists (NAWA) was established in 1889 by five progressive women artists'?  Originally founded as the Woman's Art Club, today known as The National Association of Women Artists.  It was with great difficulty in 1889 for women to display their art publicly.  Thank you to those women for paving the way for women artists today!

INSPIRATION

Travels, landscapes, experiences in nature and people inspire, giving me new material to create!  I always have a sketch pad available on hand.  It is one of the most important tools any artist can have.  Photography helps me to see things at a later date, but it is only a tool.  Something happens as I make a drawing.  It can better be defined as a meditative state.  All outside influences are tuned out.

Drawing has always been my strongest passion.  After many years of working as an illustrator in Los Angeles, New York, and Italy, my style has evolved.  As a fine artist. I have returned to drawing my paintings.  Inspiration in everyday life, people, structures, and landscapes.  Tools used are Carand'Ache Neocolor crayon sticks, oil sticks, gouache, egg tempra, oils on canvas, Oleo paper or watercolor paper.  Allowing for an immediate avenue of expression, a natural freedom.  Layers of color buildup bring a depth to each painting.  The use of a brush is secondary to drawing with solid colors.  Its use is to add more information to the final piece.   These tools allow for a drawing/painting expressive style.  Materials influence every painting.  I continue to sculpt with clay and paper; and to create images with printmaking.

The great illustrators turned fine artists, such as Hopper, O'Keeffe, Homer, Benton, Kollwitz, Cadmus, Bellows and others have influenced and inspired.

 Art heals your soul & expands your mind!
