Biography


I paint simple things, events and moments that I have observed and give me joy.  
 
I create to give honor to God who created me and loves me so much that He rescued me from my brokenness.  He did this by giving His only Son, Jesus, who paid for my life with His own death, but was resurrected from the dead because He is God.  Only the Creator knows how to rescue His creation.  He loves you and died for you, too!  This is all a mystery but it is true.  I don't know how my art honors Him - that, too is a mystery - but because I love Him, I create.
 
I began painting when I retired from working in education with young children.  Having no formal art training I have learned under the instruction and encouragement of Bonny Leibowitz, Gail Smith and other fine artists who have offered workshops nearby or online.  Play is the work of children; it is how they learn and grow.  In the same manner, painting for me is like play for a child.  It pushes and stretches and challenges me to learn and grow creatively, personally and spiritually.  I work mostly with oils.  They are creamy and surprising and beautiful and they can be shaped slowly over time or quickly with a thick stroke.  When painting realism I enjoy capturing a quiet pause in a scene, in portraits I find the candid moment carries more meaning, and then painting impressions helps me develop a better sense of composition and color. Thank you for visiting!
