In brief summary – I paint mainly on WOOD, reclaimed and rescued from 
the fire pit. My medium is acrylic and all my wood art is designed for
outdoors in all weather and protected with multiple coats of Varathane;
however, they are happy indoors too and I also love painting on canvas!

My process often begins with a dream, then writing and on to painting…or in reverse. I have given into a new interpretation over the last few years. My dreams and early memories are a portal of sorts; they guide where my paint brush goes; an inward mirror. Creative arts have been
for me and many others, catalysts for spiritual growth and overall healing.

 

Now in semi- retirement I have simplified my life with the main focus being my art. Dream interpretation, symbology through visualization and meditation are some of the tools used in my previous workshops and life works. I have borrowed from these techniques enhancing my current art and writing.

 

A self-taught artist, I love to experiment with all types of
techniques, mediums and styles; I have tweaked these and have had fun. I love nature, animals and the mystical dream world. My website provides a detailed view of my art; blog posts detail my writing and art combinations and at home, an addition in my yard of an outdoor gallery.
