WHO AM I?
I am a mixed media artist. I returned to college at California State University Sacramento to discover new paths in creative expression after the passing of my husband. My three adult children supported my decision and added to my resolve. The process of earning my Bachelors (2012) and my Masters degrees (May 2014) showed me how strong I could be and where my life’s passion lies.
I work intuitively, rarely starting with more than a general concept, but intuition can only point the way. We must choose to follow the path and then figure out why we were compelled to go there. Maybe it is divine inspiration or the soul's guidance that speaks to us. I choose to listen and follow.
I have always been a maker. Making just one or two items was never enough, let me make seven or twenty. A series? Yes please! I had a teacher who once said to learn everything you can inside the box and only then can you expand the box and learn more.
Art began as a way to keep my mind and heart busy. It was a channel to healing, my calm in the storm. I frequently seek that calm even today. Creating led to learning and discovering. Making followed by analysis and reflection trained my intuition by adding new experiences to my unconscious and strengthening my ability to express the unrealized and wonderful.
