Several years ago, a dear friend invited me to an art class she was teaching. While I was always involved in music from early childhood, I never took art classes or did much drawing or doodling. In her class I discovered a passion for art, color and creating and now greatly enjoy spending time in my art studio. I love bold, vibrant colors and experimenting to see interesting effects that result from combining different paint consistencies and pigments. Most of my work utilizes vibrant color combinations, but recently I was challenged to use a more neutral palette to create works that are beautiful and visually interesting, just in a different way. I enjoy the challenge of creating custom art pieces of different sizes, colors and techniques to make something special for my clients’ spaces.
