A mentor once told me "Try to do your very best and be yourself". I have done that, I have painted in most mediums, first oils, acrylics, watercolor, coloured pencil and I've even had a go at pen & ink and pastels.
I've painted on almost every surface, wood, fabrics, glass, canvas, paper, you name it I painted it, or at least tried! My artistic journeys into the world of art, has been wonderful, I am basically a realist, although I do like some abstracts I see, and have tried that too, but acquiring my CDA (Certified Decorative Artist) degree from the NSDP in the USA, one of my my happiest moments. Your comments keep up my spirit, and are good for the soul, even the hard criticisms. I welcome them. I now paint in watercolor and my portraits are in coloured pencil for the soft realism it gives me.
I have had many wonderful experiences in my life. My Creator and my family being the most important
Please join my email list .... give me your suggestions and input. I welcome them all and try to answer every one I get there I need work to overcome my realist desires. I love God's marvellous creations and how it all works together and that has been my goal in life, to paint it all. I love the world around me, and I want desperately to preserve it, in my case, through my art. I have a thousand photos to paint. The world is inspiringly beautiful, so whether it's my "bloomin' roses", creative landscape visions, my animals, children, sketching favourites or abstracts I hope you enjoy my work as much as I do creating it!
My experiences while teaching art for many years was the greatest learning experience of my life and .
