Acrylics and Mixed Media
I have always admired other people’s art. However I never had the time or the inspiration to produce my own art. Frankly, I really felt that I had no artistic talent. When I retired after many years of teaching, and with my children grown, I decided it was time to do something new and different. I tried several activities, and then when I took my first ever art lesson I was awful! I persevered and I began to do better. I was liking it!
I have have now been painting for 14 years. I began with watercolors which I enjoyed. About 6 years ago I started painting acrylics, this changed and expanded my abilities. Recently I have been experimenting with mixed media. I am excited by this media, it has opened many new avenues of art for me.
I have studied under Nancy Schearski and other local artists. I now study with Aleta Jacobson a creative and inspirational artist. I am a member of AAIE, Associated Artists of the Inland Empire, and of course PVAA.
