I love painting and I love wordplay.
A painting is a form of journaling for me, minus the words, and greeting cards are just small paintings WITH words.
You'll find both here.
Creating art is my passion. I am completely happy and at ease when I'm in my studio working on a canvas.
I was invited to my first "art demo" by my 80 year old neighbor in 1996. Enchanted by the process, the freedom, and the expressiveness, I never stopped experimenting.
I paint nearly every day, and I also have a lot to say...so spontaneously, I began pairing words and watercolors. When I started sharing these small vignettes which I now call Recovery Cards, they were well received and the collection of cards was created.
After having taught painting classes in Alzheimers facilities for 3 years, I'm very comfortable with watercolor, and prefer using it for detail work, but when I'm feeling more daring, I choose acrylic paint!
