The desire to follow my dream of becoming an artist has always been with me, but there were a few speed bumps and road blocks along that path. Now, decades later, here I am taking a leap and RECLAIMING MY ARTIST LIFE.
I've been working this past year on a collection of paintings inspired by my daily hikes on nearby trails, faraway travels, and the beautiful town of Stillwater, Minnesota along the St Croix River where I live with my husband.
There's something so satisfying about starting with a seed of an idea, creating a composition and color palette, and then being open to allowing for an organic development of that idea. I love the challenge of laying colors onto the surface, and working through both struggles and moments of "flow" until it has taken on a voice and a life of its own.
