I love creating art showing my faith, love of nature, and love of people with touches of whimsy. I find there is a flow of thought that begins as I put out paint and I include something exotic with something familiar to intrigue. I enjoy mixed media as I work with watercolor, acrylic paint, collage of various papers and digital art. I use collage to build up a composition. There are times when art tells stories. In time of travel, I have learned other approaches to creating art such as Japanese rice paper or Washi paper. Learning as I experiment is important as learning in a workshop.
