I welcome this opportunity to share my art with you! I am primarily a figure artist, working in charcoal and pastel; I also work with watercolor and other painting media from time to time. Drawing the figure in its many variations is fun- and a challenging mental and physical exercise. My goal is to convey some sense of the subject’s mood or spirit while also depicting form accurately.
I’ve been drawing since I was a child and took a smattering of art courses in college. I worked as a paste-up artist in the pre-computer era and a graphic designer before switching career paths to the fields of developmental disabilities and special education. I migrated west from New York state to western Colorado and once retired moved to California, finally settling in my current home in the forest north of Gualala. I am most grateful to be living in this beautiful natural environment and artistically supportive community. I’ve shown and sold work wherever I lived and have received awards from Elmira College and the Schenectady Art Association in New York, and at Art in the Redwoods locally. I will be showing my work along with my husband and his pottery; we look forward to your visit.
