ARTIST STATEMENT

I was raised in the S.F. Bay Area, Cape Cod Way in Concord, CA. Knew I was an ARTIST by the 6th grade. Have not stopped creating & learning something new, ever. Love pen & ink, watercolor, latex, acrylics, ceramics & now, my favorite: ENCAUSTICS! 
Started painting Christmas Windows in 1971. Haven't missed a season, & will continue until I can't hold a roller. 
In the 80's, Bill Radley & T. Scott Sayre watched me painting windows & recruited me to help them paint murals. Le Virage, Walnut Creek was my favorite! We did have fun...
In 2010, discovered the Encaustic medium..& was blessed to have personal Encaustic workshop with Mentor, Fran Brown. I love the texture, smell & layering....There was an adjustment period from working very large & fast, to slow & small! My current artwork also incorporates Sacred Geometry, broadcasting beneficial energy into every room my work hangs. Thank you my Dowsing Mentors... Sharron Hope, Adhi Two Owls, Jeanne Gehringer... 
I reside in Oroville, CA, I fell in love with EZ, kicked-back Lake Oroville lifestyle. My  Real Estate career brings me the income & leisure to enjoy painting what I feel.... 
My wish is that you enjoy an emotion, memory, or spark of recognition: past, present, or future while viewing my work!
