As a child I was blessed to be surrounded by quality art. My mother was an art teacher and art collector. I was exposed to abstract paintings and sculptures long before that type of art came into vogue. Denver public schools always had strong art programs so I was able to take classes from elementary school on….often every day. Being a shy student, it felt good to excel in the subject and in turn I decided to become an art teacher myself. Though I’m now retired from teaching, I continue to delight in taking art classes and workshops .
My inspiration sources are many. A few examples would be the Asian art I was exposed to early in life, my own world travels, my fascination with the human figure which you will often find in my work.
I love letting the creative journey take me where it does…..often not knowing at the beginning where it will end.
