I am thrilled to welcome you to my online Fine Art Shop! My art and writing bring me great joy and peacefulness. It is my hope that my work can evoke those feelings in you as well.
Working from life either on location or in my studio is what excites me! Nature is my constant muse and companion. Actually my wisest teachings have come from the introspection I experience while in nature. There is something amazingly freeing and peaceful when my brush and nature unite.
I am always striving to increase my skills and insight as an artist. In July 2015, I began a daily creative drawing habit and continued my project well over a year. Each day on my daily walks, I collected a small sprig of nature to sketch.
This small nature treasure was placed on my sketch book and drawn from life. I photographed it and posted it on both my blog and social media platforms. I didn’t realize when I started this creative habit, the profound affect it would have on my drawing skills and the intimacy I would feel with my subjects. Other interests were ignited as well, pushing me into the exploration of new concepts.
As an extension to my daily creative project, I began creating larger nature drawings and just recently miniature botanical paintings. All are available in my shop.
I hope you can grab a cup of your favorite beverage and peruse my shop! I love hearing from you or connecting with you online. Please feel free to message me if you have any questions or say hello online in the social media world!
