Location: United States
I was born and raised in Texas, however spent some time overseas living with my family in Cali Colombia for a year at the age of ten and in Zurich, Switzerland at the age of 18. At the International school as a senior I took my first painting class. I was influenced by the art world around me in Europe and began to paint still-life/ landscapes and enjoyed the process of learning how to mix paint. When I left Europe and attended a jr. college I studied music and therefore did not continue my education in art until I attended Baylor University in the fall of 1970. I received my BS degree from Baylor with a secondary education degree in Physical Education and Art. Since that time I've taught in many diverse teaching positions and after many years of teaching I had an opportunity to obtain my MA degree in Painting from Texas Woman's University. Presently I enjoy teaching as an adjunct professor. Recently I had the opportunity to travel to Istanbul Turkey with my husband for several different summer. During one of those trips I had a solo art show in Istanbul at Aden gallery. My personal style continues to evolve and much of my current work is abstraction based upon experiences that I have had with individuals and places I have visited. I always say that my work is an enmeshment of both worlds inner and outer.
These paintings were create from paper a new form which I had never seen anywhere. The artwork is created from paper that is shaped and some are mounted on board or canvas, some are left to hang in their shaped form. The layers include watercolor, and acrylic/ collage, and the final layer is a poured resin when it dries looks shinny and wet. The work is considered "relief sculpture" Sizes vary
