I was exposed to the wonderful world of oil when I went back to school after marching my children off to preschool. While pursuing a graphic arts degree, basic design, and painting were my focus. As career and family were my focus, my creative desire was somewhat silenced. Retirement has allowed me to release the creative urge within me.
I am a visual artist working in watercolor, pastel, and oil, living on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula in Washington state.
My subject matter in oil is very different from my pastel and watercolor work. My watercolor is expressionistic, whereas my pastel work is abstract. And I have recently begun to work in oil in the last 3 years.
