Artist Statement:

I am a “people person” who is fascinated with People….. in general.

I grew up in Kansas City, Missouri where I was introduced to the Arts…. all kinds. The Nelson-Atkins Gallery of Art and the Kansas City Museum, among other venues, enriched my appreciation and participation in creativity. I was blessed to have parents who encouraged us to have drawing and painting materials available at all times. Artistic expression was just fun; each of my other siblings were also gifted with artistic abilities.

Although I have enjoyed working in other media, including watercolor, oil, acrylic, and gouache, I am devoted to the medium of pastel. Pastel works so beautifully to convey the look of human flesh. I enjoy carbon pencils when I want to do drawings in black and white.

My first commissioned portrait was when I was a sophomore in college. As a few years passed; more commissioned portraits were coming my way. When my husband, Ed, and I moved from K. C. to Austin, Texas, I became affiliated with the G. Harvey Gallery and the manager suggested I might also do well portraying the people of the Southwest. To me, that meant its native People. For the next 30 plus years I concentrated my efforts on portraying these wonderful people from many different tribes, although I continued taking private portrait commissions.

Because I had to deal with some serious health issues, my career was slowed for a while but I am so blessed to be healed. Later we moved to Albuquerque, and I just wanted to search some other venues for a while. There had been so many years of traveling required to find subjects and going to invitational shows. I needed, and took a sabbatical (glad I did), but the “itch” to paint never ceased!

And now, as a New Mexico pastel portrait artist, my passion is studying People....all kinds. Should someone become a new subject for a portrait, the elusive quality called, the essence of their being, is what is most important for me to convey. I strive to convey realism……even a 3-dimensional quality. If you are at all familiar with my work, you will know that I don’t work loosely, nor do I want to. I want my portraits to produce in the viewer, the feeling that the subject is actually living and breathing; and if you could reach out and touch the painting, you could even feel the warmth of the subject’s body. What really turns my creative juices on is my appreciation for the Spirit God has placed in His human masterpieces……the potential of an everlasting spirit. That’s what animates humanity.

Some people just seem to have faces, but there is something called the countenance that exists much more deeply than just the facial features by which we recognize each other. You really have to look deeply to find it in some people, but I just keep looking……..it’s there, along with a person’s essence; those are the elements I want to capture in a portrait.

I am a participant in The Portrait Society of America and the New Mexico Art League. In the 2012 Portrait Society of America show sponsored by the Art League of New Mexico, I won Best of Show for Midsummer's Daydream.
