As an artist growing up in a small town in upstate New York, I was able to sit back and take in the beauty of the four seasons. As spring turned into summer, photography was a passion. The hydrangeas in the garden, the lupines along the road, and the black-eyed susans everywhere I looked made for delightful inspiration.
As the fall approached, it was leaf season. A time for more photography, watercolors of leaves, harvest moons and fields of gold were drawn with oil pastels.
Soon, the snow came. It was only then that all the photographs of the summer in bloom crowded my table, all waiting to be composed into some haphazard arrangement out of charcoal on drawing paper.
Now these pieces of art adorn the walls, each telling a story of which they came.
It was during my freshman year of college, that I focused on fashion drawing, and that led its way into a love of details. After being introduced to Intaglio Printmaking, I realized I loved all details…details in fashion, details in architecture…details of landscape drawing.
I produced a numbered, limited series of etchings on copper plate…a collection of architectural prints, after which I held my first art show, and had a commissioned piece purchased by the President of my college.
In the years to follow, I have found great pleasure in the details of Art, and love to experiment with all mediums. I spend my free time in my Art Studio and enjoy the pottery wheel, as well as calligraphy, drawing, painting and incorporating a broad spectrum of technology into the art program at the school as well as photography as a hobby.
