I did a series on women and used old antique clothes that I found in antique shops. I named them all after different types of women. The Elegant Woman was once a very expensive dress for someone young and beautiful and wealthy. The Bride was one of this series. I loved using colored pencils. It is a very meditating type of work. You become so involved you forget the time and the day.
I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I went to college when I was 37 years old. I loved it so much, I was a sponge and absorbed anything and everything about art. I started out wanting to be a portrait artist but ended up using pencil and colored pencils. I made quite a name for myself with my drawings. I won many awards. When I needed a break from that I went into oil sticks and just loved them and again did very well with awards. I finally went back to my oils but always felt frustrated with them I wanted to be free from all constraints, I am now working in acrylics and loving them. So now the sky is the limit. I just want to go and do everything I feel and want to express.
