I love to experiment with all different kinds of mediums. I suppose that stems from the fact that I started painting so late in life – I want to hurry up and learn it all. And though oil paint is my favorite medium in the recent past I’ve done works in encaustic, mixed media collage, acrylic inks and a watercolor and pastel combination.
Lately, much of my work centers around female portraiture and figurative pieces, both impressionistic and abstract. I’ve recently discovered a great part of my inspiration stems from childhood memories of the women in my family from earlier generations. They were stalwart, sturdy figures, no-nonsense women who were farm wives and full-time moms.
