|I am a self-taught artist and a mother of three who see's beauty in so many things.I love nature... flowers in full bloom,sunsets,reflections on the water,northern lights,etc.Usually working from my own photos,I always have my camera in hand hoping for that perfect picture.
Oil paint would have to be my favorite medium but I have been painting more with acrylics lately because of their quick drying time.I have also been teaching myself to use an airbrush and trying out encaustics.
I have donated various paintings for many different fundraisers
over the years,and have sold my work online,art shows(Night of Artist's) and Homefire Bar and Grill in Edmonton,Ab.I have been lucky enough to paint pictures for different murals with Mural Mosaic(from St Albert,Ab).my first one being their Wildlife mural- Earth's Treasure Chest which had articles in the Wildlife art magazine and The Artist's magazine.Half of the proceeds from that mural were donated to CPAWS(Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society).
In August 2006 I took my first art course with wildlife artist John Banovich and hopefully I can get in a few more courses in the future.
Thanks to all that have looked at work! Please feel free to leave a critique , I love to hear what people have to say...good or bad. I can learn from it, make changes to my work and become a better artist.
Thank you so much!!
