I have a love for art in all forms and mediums, be it painting, mixed media, sketching, charcoal, water colour and sculpting. To me, every piece of creative work I see has a beauty and personality all of it's own, from a child's excited, colourful scribbles on a wall, to an experienced artists 'masterpiece'! For me personally it is all beautiful and reflects a part of the artists soul.
Being a full time Mother most of my adult life I never had time for anything else. And now with my children being young adults themselves, independent and living their own lives I find myself with ample free time to just be, and create! I am a self- taught artist this past few years, and having the time of my life, absorbing all that I can, and creating as I go along.
I am enjoying all mediums at this time and have to develop a personal style as such, but I'm finding portraiture of people and animals (in graphite) to be the most rewarding right now. A lot of my past work is now hanging in the homes of overseas buyers and friends. (Happy to say!) To see the subject come alive, little by little in front of me and by my hand, truly inspires and excites me!
If anything I create now or in the future inspires another, brings them joy, or connects with them on a positive, uplifting level, it will be a job well done to me, and well worth the process.
Ultimately to connect with others on a universal level, and help them to see the beauty and love that IS this life, is my passion and desired goal ... if my art helps me to attain this, I will have lived a good life.
