This is one of the pieces I will be showing at ArtSplash, July 18-22 at ArtWorks. This is the annual show put on by ArtistsConnect, an artists' support group that meets the fourth Saturday of each month at ArtWorks. This show will include artists showing for the first time as well as experienced artists. If you are interested in the show or in joining the group, check it out at www.artists-connect.com.
I work primarily with acrylic on canvas, board or watercolor paper. My style is loose and very colorful. I consider myself an experimental painter and often incorporate elements such as ink, graphite, paper, beads, clay and whatever else I happen across. Whether I am painting a landscape, still life or abstract, the subject is simply a vehicle for the color and stroke. I work from my imagination and go wherever the painting takes me,working on several paintings simultaneously. I call my work Joyful Art because creating it brings me such joy.
