I began painting as an interior house painter, using walls as my surface of choice, but after being encouraged by family to explore faux finishing, my direction changed altogether. I attended workshops and learned paint techniques that allowed me to create wall finishes that had depth and interest unlike anything I'd seen.
After over 25 years of using specialty paints and products, I developed an interest in painting on canvas or paper. I've discovered I love bright colors that call my name but also enjoy the occasional neutral palette that has a calming effect.
As with my faux finishing, I continue my art education with workshops, online classes and talking with local artists, but part of this process is experimenting with new paints, textures and additives and seeing how they react. I feel like a mad scientist sometimes, especially when using resin and torching it!
My hope is that my art makes your heart sing!
