Artist Statement:
Although not a professional artist, I have created art most of my life. I entered the art community by taking classes at The Drawing Studio with Phil Sylvester as my teacher. It was here I rekindled my drawing and painting skills in portrait and figurative work. I completed four art classes with him and joined a figure drawing group that met monthly in his classroom space.
My art work was further enhanced by participating in two group art shows and being a member with the artists at the Talisman Art Gallery. During this time, I joined an art critique group with five other artists. I have been meeting monthly with them for approximately five years.
My passion and inspiration to complete An Iris Stands Tall, defined my creative life in fine art and writing for three years. I recently was asked to complete ink drawings for Cerimon House called, Evening Quiet. This project was completed in August 2018. At this time, I am devoted to completing my next exhibit, I Pledge Allegiance: Concepts of Patriotism, Division and Unity.
