Red Earring

  • A twist of the hip, a turn of the head...just a few things that I want to capture when I draw. Those little movements make a piece magical. "Red Earring" began with a lovely charcoal drawing on a luscious piece of hazel colored pastel paper. The drawing now floats in encaustic, her hair adorned with Queen Anne's Lace. Is she part of a dream?

Art was a means of communicating without speaking when I was young and painfully shy. Figurative elements have always found their way into my work, regardless of subject matter. I want the viewer to see how the lines and energy I use relate to humanity. How we are all connected through life’s cycle.
