Watercolor & Acrylic
Since living on Madeline Island I am spoiled with natural beauty and I search for media that can show the natural environment. It was difficult to capture the rich landscape without creating a painting that merely copies the view. I want to express vitality and fluffiness along with my great love of color. Through watercolors and acrylics I can create work that best reflects an abstract of the natural environment. Along with the energy of nature I love the excitement of the human form. Everything in my art is about energy. My hope is my paintings will give a unique and personal experience to the viewer just as Madeline Island has given each of us a unique and personal experience.

Do artists create reality as they see it, or does reality show the artist what to create?
My work reflects what I feel about life and all the changes that have occurred in my life. As a young girl I have sketched many pieces, not really knowing what I was trying to express. As I learned more about life, I realized I had a lot to say. All my pieces tell my story; I started that story when I was six years old.
I have always interpreted the world in an abstract manner: as far back as I can remember, I knew nothing I saw and heard was all there was to the story. For me the world is a jumble of thoughts and ideas that run amuck. My art reflects the idea of life and all its jumbled aspects. The titles I choose for my works are as Important to me as the work itself. I want the combination to provoke the viewers to think about their own lives and opinions; I want them to interpret what they see in their own way. And I want them to see that the best way to live life is with an open mind.

I have painted on an off for most of my life. After leaving a career in data processing to be a stay-at-home mom, I decided to go back to school to study art. I love the creative aspect of illustration, creating images to bring ideas to life, so I chose that degree program rather than a more traditional fine arts degree. I now enjoy painting the beauty I see around me without necessarily focusing on a message.

teaching abstract art using found objects
I see my surroundings and i want to express what I think of what is happening in the world in ways that tell a story and bring awareness to life itself. I want people to find their stories through my work; be it an image that brings up memories,, makes the viewer think about things happening in the world, or find their thoughts on life.
Art can help sift through emotions in ways that either bring peace or actions to make positive changes.
Mixed Media/Visual Artist
The main focus of my work is the human being as a social entity. I am interested in how the pervasive thought-shaping systems influence the individual and by what means. I think of each person as an amphibious being who is struggling between not just two but three realities: that one which simply "is", independent of what the mind insist on perceiving and interpreting; the other one created as a result of a conditioned perception of "reality"; and, on a more subtle level, the reality created artificially as an external mechanism of control (ideology, culture, politics, economics), which saturates and inundates the individual's life. It's my opinion that the latter constitutes "reality" for the majority of people.
In most of my present works I create a kind of palimpsest, establishing semantic relationship by juxtaposing images and codes used by the mass media, such as publicity and propaganda. I mainly use cutting of written press, as a symbol of that created ""reality"", which appear as a backdrop in my pieces, on which the human being is represented in different expressions and compositions, stripped of personal attributes and superfluous details, so the image can dialogue freely with the background elements. This encourages the viewer to question and evaluate our role as passive or active participants in society.

Expressionistic in style.”

physical, emotional, and spiritual - events real and imagined. I sign my works with Hieroglyphic

Acrylics and Mixed Media Paintings
I’m an artist, that’s all I’ve ever been for 50+ years - known by some as the Warren Zevon of contemporary painters! I paint because it gives me a means to express myself and what is on my mind at the time, even if it’s a little bizarre - that’s the Zevon connection. My work is usually expressionistic (To me expressionism is letting my imagination run wild like I'm sure it did when I was five. Whether objective or non-objective, it's all about lines, marks, splatters, blobs, etc. that push the painting into the expressionist zone - an exciting place for sure!), some with my “2-cents commentary” mixed in, or expressionistic landscapes, abstracted to a point, and an emphasis on the tropics and color - I use acrylics and mixed media. One thing for sure, creative ideas flow like a river – I’m, going to need a lot more paint!
