”I dropped my one applied art class in college because the supplies were too expensive. I took an art history minor, but never got past Europe in the 1500’s in my studies.
A decade later, I began working for an artist/my future husband in an administrative role. Initially I immersed myself in contemporary art through museums, galleries, art libraries, journals, the internet and art fairs.
My own artwork began as a primitivist experiment. Instead of a curriculum or lessons, I relied on intuition. Techniques I could have learned in class in a day took months to discover. But a unique personal style developed because I never heard "you can't do that."
While learning technique, I focused on landscapes without knowing why. Eventually I realized they were my escape from the complications of the man-made world. The abstracts are an logical extension of that escapism.
Art's value ranges from decorative to transcendental. I'm grateful for people who stop to take comfort in my work.”
