Biography


My primary challenge as an artist is to stand at my easel inside or outside, pastels at the ready, and step up to the challenge of choosing one small part of the this wide world that will make a painting. My goal is to translate a three dimensional view into a two dimensional scene which shares my vision and resonates with others. I want to create art which reflects the feeling of a specific time and place by using a painterly style of mark making that is loose and spontaneous, just like it feels when one is outside. 
 
Currently I paint exclusively in pastel, a simple combination of pigment and binder made into dry powdery sticks. When I apply pastel to a textured surface I am surprised by it’s sensitivity to pressure, flexibility of edge quality and strength of color and value. It’s fun and messy to use with nothing between my fingers and the surface except this medium. 
 
The West called to me in the late 1970's when I came to Colorado from Chicago as a young woman with an artistic preoccupation but a real occupation in the field of children and families later earning my Master’s in Social Work. Once that job had been completed I returned to art.
My friends and family say they haven’t seen someone transform themselves into a new role so completely as they have seen my transformation from social worker to artist but, it was always there.
