I am a visual artist and graphic designer living and working in metropolitan Denver, Colorado. After 30 years of graphic design, I decided that I needed to create fine art again.
In my life before children (BC), I drew every day. My medium was mixed media; mostly rapidograph, colored pencil and photography. One child keeps you very busy, two children created a whirlwind where I could not find the time to draw. It was always in the back of my mind, that I would find a way to get back to it. Time passed and I found myself staring into the mirror at a much older person. The funny thing about dreams, is that they never go away.
I joined the Art Students League of Denver in 2011 and started taking classes. Encaustic painting classes offered me the opportunity to take mixed media to a different place. My paintings are vibrant and playful. Photographs, drawings, encaustic, found objects and pastel paintings converge, which makes for an interesting piece of textural art.
