In the Mirror, 1994, acrylic on masonite, (36"x48")
For thirty-seven years I taught Art, Crafts and Ceramics at Redlands High School. I have spent almost twenty years as an Arts Education Advocate through my work as District Mentor and with the California Arts Project. Regular vacation schedules allowed me to camp, fish, hike and relax, at the mountains, beaches and deserts of California. Through my solitary travels I partake in more contemplative art practices.
My personally “expressive” artwork has been mostly, drawing, painting, collages and assemblages. I’m now beginning to translate and transfer some of my artistic images to the computer as you are seeing.
Now that I am retired from teaching, I am working on several large collages that I have been researching and collecting for over many years. I have begun a return to acrylic paintings, painting over some old canvases and determined to use up all my art materials if possible. If you see anything you like you can make an offer on it. Enjoy.
