Artist Statement"I have found the artistic process to be a wonderful outlet for my self-expression, creativity, and imagination. 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. The process of creating art is very soothing to me and improves my problem solving skills as well.
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 and pastels. My main focus in watercolor and/or pastels is the different effects on color by light & shadows.
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 also have a watercolor selected for Somerville Open Studios 'Donut Show', my painting Cheaper by The Dozen I will be on display at Union Square Donuts, 20 Bow St.
I teach drawing and watercolor on the weekends, and enjoy seeing the weekly progress of my student's artwork as they learn new techniques."
