In the Gallery

Art has always been a source of enjoyment for me, whether using it to express my emotions, record a specific moment or scene, focus a thought, or just to pass the time.  I receive much satisfaction from starting with a blank paper and ending with a pleasing combination of color and form.


I like to work in several mediums, but colored pencil is my favorite.  It can mimic the look of other mediums while retaining the control a pencil affords.  I use primarily Prismacolor pencils.  They are wax based with rich, vibrant colors that blend and layer well, allowing for smooth, even coverage.


I consider the majority of my work ‘paintings’ rather than ‘drawings’.  These pieces have no visible paper and are thoroughly saturated with color.  This is a slow process of building up layer after layer of different colors to achieve character and dimension.   My subject matter varies, but most of my pieces are still lifes or portraiture.  Two pieces, ‘Grandma’s Silver’ and ‘Dreaming’ have been published in two colored pencil periodicals.


I am a self-taught artist, and although I have created pieces of art for most of my life, the thought of showing and selling my work is relatively new.   My friends and family have been very supportive and encouraging as I’ve ventured into this new territory.
