Oil | Pastel
I often say I am a painter rather than an artist. I love to create pictures that reflect the beauty I see in anything from a lovely pose to a beautiful landscape. I do not feel I am breaking new ground or creating something never before seen. But I can get lost in the stroke of a paintbrush or the feel of a pastel on paper.
Art has become for me a synthesis of teaching and painting. I learn more about painting as I teach and they are equal passions for me. I am drawn to light…that flicker on the shoulder as a figure enters a sunlit space or the way light enters between the trees and then diffuses its color to the surrounding leaves. Creating a safe space for students to succeed or fail and learn to love the process of creating a painting is as important for me as creating a successful painting.
