My dedication to my work began in the late 1980's. It was then that I had my first experience with watercolor. I experimented with variations in media and different applications. From those different uses I began to explore light and its various connotations in artwork. This process would ultimately lead me into color and black and white photography. For years, watercolor, a touch of acrylic, glue, colored tissue paper and the occasional box of salt were my focus in the use of washes, words, and a little wisdom. My goal was to produce light on paper in a myriad of forms while speaking to my viewer's soul. This continued in the form of collages until 1995 when, because of a debilitating illness, my brush became silent. Unable to hold a brush in my hand I now use the digital canvas to bring my work into the 21st century.
Photography and various forms of digital art are now my focus. The use of light and its ever-changing mood are still very much a part of my ever-changing canvas. My goal is to show different aspects of life with my photography and to make a statement with my digital work that embraces both color and light.
