I use many different mediums, such as clay, acrylics, and pastels and many different surfaces. Experimenting with oil on metal such as the one depicted here, Gooseberry Driftwood on copper. I believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. Each idea manifests in its own individual style.
Because of a magical childhood growing up on Lummi Island with one foot in the water and one foot on land I am continually inspired by "living on the edge."
A few years ago Kathleen, Debra, and myself attended an event, Art In The Garden, at Nancy & Scott's beautiful home and garden in Portland, Oregon. There was this single model, a group of 4 nudes, and a trio of musicians in different parts of the garden in different scenerios. The trio played, we painted and moved around the gardens to choose our model and compositions. It was magical. This is one piece from that weekend.
