Acrylic, Watercolor & Clayprint
Landscape painting takes me back to my roots in art. It is where I truly first began to see myself as an artist. My first art love will always be the act of allowing myself to paint and slowly absorb a location. I began working with oils in middle school, but at Colorado State University I fell in love with the ease of acrylics. My love of travel and adventure led me to rediscover watercolors as an adult.
My first real experiences working with fiber go back to a college weaving class. I found loved working with dying yarns and the meditative nature of working on the loom. When my husband was injured I needed to find a portable way to bring this process to his hospital rooms, to help me cope. I rediscovered coiled basketry and have incorperated this process into my studio practice.
