“Until my retirement ten years ago, teaching art to elementary students was my passion. I was often surprised that my students had never been exposed to media such as clay and watercolor. Watching their excitement as they explored these materials was contagious. Now my passion is creating and developing my own style of artwork through studying with experienced artists, examining art history and viewing all styles of art. As a Mixed Media artist, texture and color are integral parts of my artwork. No material or medium is too unusual for me to explore. I often yearn to explain to the viewer the very materials used in my artwork…..such as torn papers, rusted metal or wasps nests!”
