Over the week-end, I was part of a Holiday Bazaar with many wonderful artists displaying their work. It was held in a beautiful historic building owned by the San Jose Woman's Club. The rain did not keep anyone away and I was humbled by the many people who enjoyed my work. I am an artist because I have to be and I continue to paint.
As an artist I am inspired by places and people I have met. I turn ordinary moments and memories into the extraordinary. My love of bold color and simply strokes celebrate women in a very positive way. My images tell a story, my story some shy some bold. They express a universal rhythm that reminds others of their own stories, seen in a myriad of color. I also love giving life to old worn chairs. How fun is that! Working in acrylics and oil I also enjoy ink. Time flies so quickly and people and places reappear in my mind one after another. I feel totally free to paint what I feel which is possible because etched in my memory are so many amazing events . My story is many cultures and many backgrounds that inspire my mood painting. Long walks and my garden feed my creative spirit. Sights and sounds often ignite a passion to paint which I do daily. My paintings are in private collections in the United States, China, and Canada. Being creative, is a way of life.
