I have been creating art and doing crafts since childhood. From spending hours cutting out paper dolls from the Sears & Roebuck or JC Penney's catalogs to building things out of any material I could find, I can't imagine life without working on something creative.
In the 60's, crazy abstract art was popular. It wasn't unusual to see odd objects and materials sandwiched into the paint on a canvas. Some of my art had clumps of toilet paper, string, buttons, and anything else that looked interesting or intriguing pasted on the canvas. In the 70's, I used oils and acrylics and did a variety of styles including landscapes, still life, florals and whatever else piqued my fancy. I'm proud to say that I won a couple of awards during that time.
I went back to using acrylics in the 80's but never settled on one style of art. The mid-90's brought about motherhood so I switched my focus and started creating arts and crafts with our son. By the time he graduated from high school, we had worked on a lot of projects together, including helping him start a craft business.
Jump ahead a few years and digital art was the perfect medium to combine with my technical skills. My motto? Life is too short to do just one thing. As long as I'm working on something creative, I'm happy because the possibilities and opportunities are endless.
In addition to creating one-of-a-kind acrylic art for sale, I also offer pouring workshops. If you are in the Inland Empire area of Southern California and would like to host a workshop or want to discuss fundraising options, please contact me. It makes a fun activity for small and large groups. It's also a great option for company events when they need a break from the daily work stress. This is one form of art that can easily be enjoyed by young children as well as senior citizens.
