Incorporating iron-rich, red Utah dirt into my paintings for pigment and texture fills me with excitement. As a child, I used to love to play in the dirt. I suppose I still do! Nature is my muse and my "art store".
I delight in collecting sand and soil from places that have special meaning for me and my clients to mix with acrylic paints and mediums. This creates paintings that have unique, distinctive and cherished aspects of a place in them.
This blog was created to share my belief that the art-making process is a catalyst for transformation and personal empowerment. I am living proof.
