Well, here it is 2015! My resolution is to be as creative as I want, in any type of medium I feel like. Most people in the art world will tell you it’s good to stick with one kind of art, and that may be, but I don’t want to be tied down. If I want to paint, I will. If I want to go out and take pictures, I will. And as far as my photo collages are concerned, I’m in the process of experimenting with new ways to do those. So stay tuned, and soon, you may see exiting new works of art. And who knows, possibly new mediums. For now, I’ve already got lots of exciting and different types of work on this website. I hope you’ll take a look. To the left is one of my many geometric abstract paintings called “Dancing Moons”. I hope you enjoy it, it feels rather “freeing” to me!
First of all, I’d like to say HAPPY HOLIDAYS! We’re all really busy at this time of the year, but in the end, it’s all worth it! Just to update everyone on what I recently found out. Two of my photo collages, “Springtime” (at left) and “Red Flower Lighthouse” were accepted to be in the 2015 Hidden Treasure Art Magazine. I’m very honored and excited! Also, since it’s that time of the year, I wanted to remind you that I do offer Santa Cruz affordable gifts for sale, right here on this website, in the form of magnets and mousepads. Once again, I wish everyone Happy Holidays!
Fall is a beautiful time of the year here in Santa Cruz. Recently, we had some much needed rain in the morning, breaking way to a crisp, autumn sunny day.
Well the holiday season is upon us. If you’re like me, you’ve probably found that shopping online is a lot easier than fighting the traffic on the roads or in the stores. Not to say that I won’t also be doing a lot of that, but my other option is to sit in my own home, and get a lot of my shopping done online. I’m happy to say that although you can buy fine art on this website, you can also buy affordable Santa Cruz magnets and mousepads. I hope you’ll check that page out too.
As far as the art world goes, I have a couple of things in the works, and I’ll keep everyone updated as I know more. Happy Holidays!
Thanks for visiting my new and improved website. This has been quite a journey to get to this point. As a lot of you already know, I had an art studio at the Tannery Arts Center for two years. It was a wonderful experience for me and I met lots of great people! The newspaper article (below) about me was obviously written while I was still there. Even though I loved my time there, I decided to explore new options. And right now, this new website is somewhat of a fresh start. If any of you miss the old studio, my husband and I took some videos of my artwork before I left. Since we’re not videographers, they are by no means meant to be professional looking, but instead just give you a little online virtual tour of my work. And yes, they’re right here on this new website.
Here’s an update on what’s been happening this year so far:
For the first four months I was still in my studio doing 1st Fridays every month.
Since I’m a current member of the Santa Cruz Art League, I participated in the Annual Membership Show in January.
From Mar. 7- Mar. 23, I participated in another show at The Santa Cruz Art League called “This is Santa Cruz”.
From May 2- May 21, I participated in a juried art show called “Photography Writing With Light” at the Pacific Art League in Palo Alto, CA. I was also there for the 1st Friday opening of the show.
From Sept. 9 – Sept. 14, I had two paintings displayed at The Santa Cruz County Fair.
Currently, three of my photographs are featured on the cover of The Santa Cruz
County Bar Association Membership Directory July 2014 – June 2015.
And like I said earlier, this website has been my main focus for the last couple of months. I hope you enjoy it!
Below the newspaper article is a picture of my grandchildren I took last year at Natural Bridges State Beach. I dressed them up to look like they were in Hawaii and they posed accordingly. It was fun, but windy! Anyway, I entered that picture in the Photography section of The Santa Cruz County Fair last year and it won 1st place!
Stay tuned for more updates in the future and have a great day!
