ARTIST STATEMENT
“I am fascinated with the interplay of light, shadow and color. In working with these elements, I have attempted to portray the beauty of God’s creation and the joy I feel in being able to express my artistic gift. My major influences are the French impressionists and the Rockport/Gloucester school of painting with its broad brushed style of American impressionism. In addition, the California school has influenced me with its rich and varied color.”

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
The artist paints landscapes, seascapes, cityscapes and florals in oil, pastel and watercolor. She uses a layered impressionistic technique with the various mediums. Oils are painted on canvas with high-quality opaque pigments. Pastels are created with dry chalks of pure brilliant pigments layered on top of the other, giving the work a shimmering quality of light, shadow and color.
