Artist Statement"I consider drawing to be the most important artistic skill to master, and continually remind myself when I am drawing to listen to my eyes and not my brain. I have found the artistic process to be a wonderful outlet for my self-expression, creativity, and imagination.
I have my BFA in drawing from UNH, and have being drawing since I could walk! Besides using various drawing media, I also enjoy watercolor, pastels and acrylics. My main focus in my artwork is the different effects by light & shadows, and reflections also fascinate me. The colors on glass and shiny surfaces (ie: marbles, jars, silver) seem brighter and more vibrant and it is fun to enhance the cast shadows from those surfaces too.
Other subjects I enjoy drawing & painting are portraits, animals, architectural structures (barns, doorways, etc), landscapes, & spring flowers.
I teach drawing and watercolor on the weekends, and enjoy seeing the weekly progress of my student's artwork as they learn new techniques."
