Wintertime finds her at her home on Amelia Island, Florida.

 

MY EARLIEST MEMORY OF CHILDHOOD IS MAKING ART….

plotting designs with Mom’s wonderful collection

of buttons or Crayola-ing the loops and circles I drew

on the cardboard insert from Dad’s laundered shirts.

I have many more colors to work with now but the

process itself hasn’t changed all that much. I still begin

the paintings with no preconceived notion…just a loose

application of thinned oil paints on primed masonite

board, or stretched linen or canvas.

The painting emerges ever so slowly revealing itself

in starts and fits. Most of the paintings, especially

the larger ones, take many months to complete. From

an amorphous splash of color comes a highly detailed

abstraction that may be reminiscent of a city, an

ancient land or even a feeling of carnival or industry.

The paintings are the product of inspiration filtered

through dreams, memories, or human archetypes.
