My art practice is late blooming, doing what I could between
family and work obligations. And now all in. I love the feel of paper under my
fingers. The immediacy of pastels and en caustics. A whole story revealed by a
fragment of time. Just a glance really. After a career that spanned GPS
consulting to data analysis and agribusiness consulting, information systems
design and development to historical building renovations and inn
proprietorship, I finally have the satisfaction from a full day spent in my own
studio. I moved into Greene Acres in 2015 where my husband and I make a home
for our assorted fur family.
As I settled back into art I sought
out the familiar. Figurative subject mater connected with place. The energy of hummingbirds. The majesty
of birds of prey. Feathers working in flight. Birds are fascinating to me in
general and, like the canary in the coal mine, shouldn't be taken for granted.
Now I am exploring ideas of fragility
and impermanence – seeking to capture the essence of that which is fleeting.
The energy. The emotive quality.
