“Art exists because life is not enough”….by artist Ferreira Gullar
I love this quote.
I currently work with oils because I love how it feels…..(This creamy and velvety smooth medium which glistens in the light when wet… )
My subject matter varies but the aim is always to try to capture light. When I see something beautiful, it’s the light I first see and which captures my attention. It’s what attracts me. As I grow as an artist, I wish to be more impactful with my statements of light……to emphasize “feeling”.
On a more personal note, I was born in Canada in a large French Canadian family. It seems that even as a young child, I always had a talent for drawing. Although my path did not lead me to be a full time artist, I have always yearned to paint. Over the years, while living my traditional life, I’ve carved out time to paint…first with watercolors, then in oils.
I currently live in North Carolina with my husband….. where I now commit to make painting a full time endeavor.
I hope you enjoy my work.
