Even as a young child, I saw myself as an artist. Of course, my idea of an
artist was a painter wearing a smock and a beret and painting on a canvas
on an easel.
In my adventures as an Artiste Extraordinaire (a self-proclaimed title),
I discovered that being an artist is about problem solving,
about asking the wonderful question "What would happen if I did
this?" (fill in the blank with techniques, materials, colors, etc.)
I've explored and experimented with just about every artistic medium you
can name. While many did not hold my attention, a few did.
This website is a visual tour of art I've created. It is intended to spark
your imagination, your creativity--even if you claim you're not creative.
It's an invitation to see from a different perspective, even if the thought goes across your mind, "How did she do that?" Or "Why did she do that?"
Often in movies a character goes to an art gallery and, having no clue what they're looking at, their comments are frequently along the lines of: "Well, I don't know about art, but I know what I like and I like that." (Whatever they're currently looking at.)
I think that is the whole point of art--for you, the viewer, to trust your own feelings, your own initial reactions--whether you like it or not, whether you understand it or not, whether you buy it or not.
