Art has found a home with me for over 22 years now. Canvas art was discovered about 9 years ago when faux finishing, and my finishing business had slowed down. During that time there were many changes I needed to adapt to. Some were painful, some were invigorating, but through it all I still had a longing to create.
So my canvas art journey started while I was living in the lovely surroundings of Charleston, SC.
I had a request from a past teacher in Colorado. He saw my finishing projects on fb and he asked if I could paint a painting for him--And That is where it all started!
I bought a large canvas and paced the floor looking at that blank canvas.
It took 2 weeks of staring at that blank canvas, before I had the courage to start.
It's funny because I had worked on scaffold and ladders working large scale multi layer finishes in high end homes, but that 36 x 48 canvas scared me so!!
Finally, one day, I just started painting--and this was my very first commission.
I was fortunate to create my canvas art near the coast. I so loved the reflection and the waters on the beach. Often I found myself racing the clock to catch the most abundant sunrises, vivid and glowing of colors so rich I had seen nowhere else. It was a time of growth and exploration that brought my art journey and curiosity to where it is today.
I moved from Charleston a few years ago, with my husband Dave.
We currently reside near Greensboro, in the country, Stokesdale, NC.
My studio is in Greensboro NC at The Sternberger Artist Center.
