I doubt I’ll have any profound explanations or poetic descriptions of my work, but who knows. The inspiration I have found has been through the abilities of other artists, particularly impressionists, and their techniques and how they could capture the real sense of a moment. My mission (since I’ve decided to accept it) is to paint every day, as much as possible, and discover the world by opening my eyes and heart to its many wonders and beauty. That’s about as poetic as I’ll get. I’m going back in the studio. Or maybe set up outside. Either way, I'm being called....
P.S. Since I wrote the previous text in March 2015 I have been pleasantly surprised (and very happy) that people wish to buy my work. Go to Contact to find out how if you're interested as well. Thank you!
P.S. (Pre Script?) Since I wrote the following text in March 2015 I have started a blog on this website (January 2016 and I have been miserable at keeping it up!), opened a DPW account (Sept 2015) and a Facebook page (Jan 2016).
Before 2014 I'd been threatening to paint. This was while I was a partner in a graphic design firm for quite some time. There I learned how to handle the chaotic discipline I seem to be personally challenged with today. My background at the Academy of Art in Montreal helped in my career, but not in actually creating anything on a consistent basis. The sidelines is where I sat. I sure did like to draw as a kid and my parents were suitably complimentary and proud of their little girl. I thank them for that. I have painted for friends as a teenager and greeting cards and Christmas cards over the years. And now here I am, exposing myself in such a way that is liberating and scary and hopeful. I’ve got to move forward,
and this website is the start of a journey I am only now prepared to take.
