When asked about my favorite aspects of my art I say, "watercolor is my very favorite." I love the way the juicy pigment reacts with water and tells a story. I've been drawing and painting all my life and I paint almost every day and love it. I always try to create something moving for my viewer. I paint animals, flowers, skies, seascapes, beaches, landscapes, people, houses or food. I paint almost anything that catches my eye.
I strive do get better each day. When the inspiration hits me I run for my paints. I love the feeling of accomplishment when I get my point across with my brush. I enjoy sharing my passion and excitement for art with others.
In the Artisan Showcase:
My late husband made a sea glass sailboat pendant for me about 5 years ago as a little gift. Friends saw my necklace and wanted him to make them one as well. The demand continued to increase and eventually my husband turned it into a full-blown very busy business.
My husband would go out looking for sea glass almost daily in our hometown of Hooper's Island, Maryland. We were renting a waterfront house at the time and would push our Hobie catamaran through our backyard and out onto the river and take it to isolated islands and collect sea glass there.
In October of 2014, one year after my husband and I got married, he was pulling the catamaran through our flooded yard, when the metal mast struck overhead power lines and took his life.
For over 18 months I couldn't look at any of his belongings and I definitely couldn't look at the sea glass that we had lovingly collected together. One day something called me and told me to go into the garage and dig out his tools and try to figure out how he made the sailboats.
Through trial and error, and playing with all the different Dremel bits and his little scroll saw, I made my first few boats that I felt like he was with me and guiding me. Especially considering I had never made anything in my entire life.
Now I have my own business selling the sea glass sailboats. It has been three years since my husband's passing and I'm not dating anyone and don't care to. Whenever I feel lonely I just go into the garage and make some boats and I feel this incredible sense of peace and love come over me.
