Painting brings me great joy. My hope is that my work reflects the beauty of nature and life, usually realistic, but sometimes abstract. My wish is that my paintings share the joy I have while painting with those who view my paintings.
My primary medium is watercolor. The water flows and carries colors, and in many ways, paints the pictures with me guiding and watching the painting develop. It is a medium quite opposite to the controlled approach of pencils, oils and thick acrylics. In fact, when I paint with acrylics, they are liquid with a lot of water still guiding the painting.
Information About the Artist
She and her husband moved to Monetta in Aiken County in 2002. They live on twenty-eight acres with ponds and woods and an abundance of wildlife. They have put most of the land in a nature conservancy so that the land will remain undeveloped and a haven for wildlife.
After retirement in 2008, she took a watercolor class with Judy Adamick and once painting again, has not been able to put her brushes down. She is currently a member of the Aiken Artists Guild, the Aiken Center for the Arts, and the Art Association of Ridge Spring.
Her work has been accepted into several juried shows and is displayed at the Gallery of the Art Association of Ridge Spring and Juniper, the local restaurant in Ridge Spring.
She can be reached at email@example.com.
Joy is the ultimate gift you can give others. Give it by being joyous.
