Portfolio Slide Show

  1. 1. Painting for me…. shares my inner world visions with the eyes of the real world. Some of my muses spend hours watching me.
  2. 2. This stair-well mural enters “The Pits” area to my husband’s Nascar basement. It is acrylic and latex. It took about nine months to complete around the school’s schedule. Created in 2000.
  3. 3. I sponsored an after- school arts program where I taught and watched over about 15 students to create a permanent tile mosaic for their artwork.

  7. 7. Thirty-two pages plus remakes…. months of work… I am still preparing a “dummy book” of “Cats for Kansas” as it is currently still a work in progress… I have 4 pages in refinement stag and finishing four full color watercolor pages for print. I will continue to work on this as I would like to show book publishers my illustration ideas and sequencing skills.

  12. 12. “The Ladies of Grace” 2006 Scanned ink drawings enhanced with illustrator program. Published in “Flip” magazine.
  13. 13. Glue Tissue paper Paper doilies Paint… These images are a documentation of taking a “risk” for a final class project.
  14. 14. The “risk” for me was that nothing was planned or sketched out ahead of time. The painting just fell into place by magic. I was painting with my heart. We visited many galleries during this class, so another part of the project was to see how other artist’s work influence your work in some way. I visited Las Vegas during this class so my painting was influenced by the Venetian. (oh, …….and a little Italian music by Josh Groban.)
  15. 15. I started the canvas a collage of tissue paper, paper doilies and real rose pedals. Then just color washes of hues I enjoy looking at, from there she and the wings emerged.
  16. 16. Six days of painting.
