I’ve been making unique items my whole life. To carve a cool-looking piece out of a chunk of wood with a chainsaw is surreal! I love how each carving comes together in the end, and that no two will ever be exactly the same. And chocolate……I really love chocolate.
I have been painting since I was a child. I find art of any sort to not only be an expression from within, but something that is wonderfully relaxing. I find all forms of art extremely beautiful and intriguing. I enjoy all combinations of colors and how they melt together. I immediately feel the need to put those colors onto canvas.
Ideas never stop swimming in my head. I hope to be able to get them ALL onto canvas at some point! I love, LOVE, to use mixed medias; from different types of papers to all types of paints: acrylic, oil and, at times, water color. I like to do abstract and acrylic pours and have embellished many with a custom design painting. Sometimes I use gems, rocks and shells. Recent dabbling in resin arts, making ocean scenes on canvas with sand and shells, has been fun!
What motivates me the most is seeing the smiles on faces and their eyes light up with joy. I know that all the love and time I put into the piece is truly appreciated. That to me, making someone happy, is what I strive to do.
