"Daily discoveries in the PA Wilds are featured in the art akits that I design and are reflected in my silk painting. I geek out over the patterns of bark, fishing, water ripples and the perfect symmetry of flowers"
Do you like to learn new things? You NEVER know where the decision to try something new will lead! A drawing pencil has been in my hand for as long as I can remember. Since 2003 I have been painting however, watching dyes move on silk fibers never ceases to delight me, the colors creep along the threads blending with one another creating the most wonderful surprises! Each and every silk piece that I paint is completely unique, no two will EVER be exactly the same - how wonderful is that?
I truly enjoy sharing the joy of art with others and as a teaching artist I have the pleasure of watching people learn a new skill. I designed the Paint the PA Wilds Warercolor Kts to share the beauty of the region and the fun of making art.
Morning strolls with my little doxie Monty leads to investigations and appreciation of spiderwebs, water tumbling in the streams and leaves budding out; these daily discoveries in the PAWilds are reflected in my work. I geek out over the patterns of bark, sedimentary rocks, water ripples and the perfect symmetry of flowers.
In addition to layering yummy colors onto silk I also paint with acrylics, play with mixed media and create detailed ink drawing; the mood, theme or message that I am inspired to capture as visual art will determine the medium that I chose for the project.
