I enjoy applying a creative attitude to all parts of my busy life. Having an artistic bent allows me to see multiple possibilities and solutions. When I set aside time to focus on artwork, the first thing I pick up is a pencil. I find that my work with graphite and colored pencils is meditative and I love the feel of pencil on paper. Acrylic and canvas are another medium I enjoy. I lean toward an organic theme of flowers and landscapes that allow room for my own interpretation. My personal interpretation will often lead to an abstract solution for the subject. Abstraction adds an element of exploration and fun to my artistic process.
