Artist. Visionary. Versatility.
The Discovery of Color
It's incredible what you see when you open your eyes and really look. I believe the artist is like a chef who can taste each ingredient in a recipe. It awakens you to so many other "flavors" around you once you begin, and a whole world opens up with vibrant hues, contrasts, light, and shadows...and in that, a tremendous inner peace and joy.
About the Artist:
I was one of the first woman Electricians who joined San Diego's Electrical Union in 1977. In 1998 I started my journey as an artist. Painting and drawing had been calling me for awhile, and I was too impatient to wait to retire first as I'd planned. I dove into oil painting with reckless abandon. I absolutely fell in love with it, and later, went back to school (after retiring from my electrical career) to improve my technique. I had the opportunity to try various mediums, and felt "like a kid in a candy store". I loved it all!
Painting is my passion, and my favorite! The process is as exciting as are the results, and I am as close to Zen as I ever am when I'm deep within a painting that magically seems to appear from my canvas.
I have created this website to showcase some of my work. I truly hope you enjoy looking through it, and I thank you for sharing my journey with me.
