Artist Statement

I’ve always admired art but never thought I had the innate talent to create it. I thought when I “had time” I’d take some lessons and see what it was all about.  Since being retired and being introduced to pastels eight years ago, I have become addicted.  Pastels are a forgiving medium and therefore they have given me the freedom to explore and make mistakes. Through instruction and pastels I have gained a renewed appreciation of the colors, shapes and moods which surround me in nature. My favorite subjects are those which I took for granted living in this area: the beaches, marsh, woods and sunsets. Most of my works are coastal, thus the name of this exhibit: Tidal Impressions.

I look forward to expanding my work and taking many more classes with other artists, especially Donna Rossetti Bailey, who has taught me to not be “a scared”, to try, and more importantly, “to have fun”. If I could give any advice it would be it’s never too late to try a new skill and it’s okay to make mistakes ….  you can even learn from them.
