Art has always been my passion but not until about 8 yrs ago did I start to show my work publicly. Since then I have had the opportunity to meet a lot of wonderful and supportive people, either artists themselves, patrons, or simply people who love and appreciate art. And I am in turn appreciative of them. I am a proud member of Lancaster County Art Association and a member of its Board of Directors. It is an honor to serve and be a part of so many talented people. Although my main focus has been landscape in the medium of pastels, I also work in oils and do portraits and figurative work. My interest in painting people centers around people involved in creative activities like music and dance. Currently I am at work on a series of paintings inspired by actors, dancers and musicians who perform at the Rennaisance Faire in Mount Hope, Pa. All my work is based on first hand experience and I work exclusively from my own references of on-site studies, sketches and photographs. I finish in the studio and embellish where I think I need to , push color and arrange the composition to suit my own sense of balance and harmony. I work from a desire to recreate the essence of a moment in nature often centered around the quality of light at the time, giving suggestion to detail rather than an accurate description. I would say Impressionism best describes my work.
I have no formal art education. I am self-taught and over the years I have studied the work of many artists of varying styles and genres of art through books, instructional videos and workshops. Two contemporary artists whose influence contributed much to my current work with pastels are Richard McKinley and Albert Handell.
