Bio: In the 1980s I earned a degree in Fine Art after getting a Bachelor of Theatre and Dance at the University of Wyoming. In the 1990s I went to teach in Japan and did a lot of painting, and even had a sold out Art Exhibition at a Gallery. Then I came home and was at loose ends; so I decided to go to graduate school in English literature in California and spent the next twenty years making my way through a Masters degree, PhD degree, and getting an academic job at the University of Texas, Arlington Painting went out the window, as I didn't have time, energy or money to create art. All the while though, creative juices were burbling beneath the surface. Finally in 2013, I earned tenure at my university, and the gift I decided to give myself was painting.
In the past I had worked mostly with oils, but I decided that I really wanted to work with watercolor, as it was faster and less messy and toxic than oils. I had to teach myself how the medium worked, as watercolor really has a life of its own, which is both a blessing and a curse. What I discovered is that paint companies have developed new and more vibrant colors, which I adore. I also love the clarity of the medium and the watery element involved in the process, which represents for me the continuing flow of life. Most recently I have discovered alcohol inks and am excited by the beautiful translucent colors and their abstract qualities. I have just returned to oil painting as well, which feels a bit like coming home after a long journey.
As an artist, I am always looking for new techniques and new ideas for paintings. I hope you enjoy experiencing them as much as I enjoy making them.
I live in Grapevine, Texas with my husband, Tom, and my ridgeback/boxer mix, Harper. Our house is a gallery, so if you are in the area and would like to look at the paintings in person, please contact me at email@example.com. Also, feel free to email me if you are interested in a commission. I have very reasonable rates, starting at $150, for an original 11" x 14" watercolor.
