Remember when I was stuck and stalled with my paintings? I did these drawings during that time.
A friend gave me some 7"x6" paper and I let some rust and tea do some work on them, then I had all these tea bags and decided to do some little drawings on them and put the two together. I also had a dream that I drew on bones, I find a lot of them when I hike, I tried a little drawing on one and liked it, so I will be doing more. All of these pieces will be going into my ETSY shop in the next week, where I am still having a 30% off sale. I always love your comments. Happy weekend! XOXO
I am a painter living in the beautiful moutain town of Taos New Mexico.
I have been painting since I was eight years old when I declared to my mother that I wanted to be an artist. She promptly went out and bought me an oil set. Perhaps not the wisest choice for a child, but it got me started. I have been painting ever since and my way of working and what I paint has changed dramatically over the years. At this point in time I am working with mixed media on board and canvas. Nearly every image starts with a dream, either waking or sleeping. Other subjects that inform my work are literature and nature. Each painting is for me an adventure in color and texture,an exploration of joy and a way for me to get to know myself better. There is always a personal narrative and some hidden message that I am unaware of until it reveals itself in the finished piece. My paintings are about whatever is going on in my life at the time I am painting. My intention when I do a painting is to be true to my authentic voice and perhaps to open someone's heart and mind to all the possibilities around them.
