She is a joyful, lovely woman who is multi-talented and I'm thrilled to count her as one of my new artistic friends. She hails from Graniteville Vermont, a lovely state to call home. We're so glad to have a new member in our ranks.
Let me wax poetic about this multi-talented lady. She paints spectacular pieces of art using several mediums like watercolor, soft pastels, ink etc. She also has started making mixed media dimensional pieces and says she loves it but it sure is messy. Here's what she says about how art makes her feel.
"The desire to create comes from within & has always been with me. I love the excitement when watercolors collide on the paper in unexpected ways as well as the gentle transparencies of the medium. I love working in soft pastels as it gets my fingers involved & the bold strokes of pure color! I (also) love the strength of lino block printing.
Over the years my feelings about art have changed a bit. Before I used to paint what I saw. But I’ve had a change of philosophy about it. I believe art is seen & felt with the heart. I paint what I feel, what moves me about the subject. I use color & exaggerated movement to express emotion. I guess the best example of this could be seen in my fiddlehead & ferns."
