Landscape Artist







 
 





"I opened the door to my creativity and found my soul"
I grew up on a farm so my love for the rural scenes are easily seen in all of my paintings.
I love the way farmers construct barns and sheds on their farms.  It seems to me to be very creative for one barn to be built then the add ons come as the years go on and as the needs arise.

Our barn was the playground for my brothers and I.  It was our tarzan swing, our fort for cowboys and indians and our castle for the king and queen.

My next love is trees.  I love them in winter when you can see their bones.  And next comes shadows.  The way shadows run across the land...I can see them moving when I paint them into a winter scene.  Shadows tell me how the land lies, how it rises and falls or the bumps in the back lane of our farm.

I love to travel.  In recent years I have been to Maine twice, Alaska, France, Italy and Great Britain.  I painted in those places but I always come back to paint my barns.

The greatest compliment I ever received was when my nephew at age 9 said he could ride his bike down the road in one of my paintings.  For a landscape painter that was the best compliment ever because that little boy saw depth in the scene on the flat surface of the canvas.  How exciting!

I work in both oil and watercolor but I love to draw...my sketch pad is my constant companion.

I can't think of a better way to say it and it sounds like very poor grammar but...I can't not paint...I feel that my life has been enriched in many ways...my husband, my children and my obsession of creating art.
