Color and texture call to me—thus my interest in abstract and realistic abstract wall paintings. I am always exploring new ways to include texture with color often using my sculpting skills and interesting found objects. My goal when painting is to create a piece of art that will provide many things for the eyes to investigate up close while showing as a delightful focus point in your room.
Horses have been a love of mine since childhood and I began sculpting them in detail in the early 2000’s. Sculpting in Plastelina, a none hardening clay, my intent is to capture the horse at work or the essence of the horse interacting with people. The plastelina is cast into a resin copy and further detailing is done prior to the final mold being made for the Resin, Bronze or China castings.
While traveling to a car show with my husband with our 1968 Charger, I picked up a sketchbook and studied cars that inspired me at the event. People began looking over my shoulder and asking me to paint their cars next. They were joyful with the result. I realized that a watercolor sketch of someone’s classic car is a treasured memory for the times they cannot be driving it.
