Sharing my world through the expression of art is a joy for me. The 'Season' series oil paintings I have posted represent single moments of an ever changing view. Just as our own lives go through changes, I see my art as an ever growing and evolving series of changing views. Today is just the start.
The patterns of our lives are constantly changing. Comfort can be found in the expected day to day patterns we create but the unexpected patterns are the ones that we learn from and that excite us to explore our world.
As I walk along the edge of Post Cove, the patterns and textures of the marsh jump out at me. I am in a constant state of imaginative play with these elements. To paint with quiet watercolors and unlock an unanticipated process or to sculpt in wood with noise and motion, the choice needs only to look at the natural patterns to be inspired.
I currently work as an artist from my vintage barn studio over looking Post Cove and the Connecticut River. I hold a B.F.A. in Painting and an M.S. in Art Education. Through my art, I work to convey the beauty and nature that surrounds my studio. I focus on the changing patterns and colors, trying to capture a single moment of an ever changing world. My inspirations are made real through painting as well as through sculpture and jewelry work. In addition, through my current art teaching position at Chester Elementary School, I am able to share my love of the arts with the many talented students who come into my art room each day.
