Acerca de mí
I grew up in a family where creative endeavors were appreciated. As a child, I was surrounded by quilts, other sewn items, embroidered and crocheted items and woodworking done by my mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, grandfather, and great-grandfather. So, of course, I developed a passion for needlework and for creating my own needlework designs. When I went to college, even though I was pursuing a practical degree, I made extra money by selling my own line of crocheted and knitted miniature items for dollhouses at a local store. One of my designs was published in a craft magazine. Since then, I have created designs for other needlework items which have also been published. Besides needlework, I am also interested in photography. During the pursuit of my first degree, I kept thinking about taking a photography course but I stayed on the practical path. Now, after years in the working world, I am back in college pursuing a BFA in visual communication, photography, and digital media. I have enthusiastically immersed myself in this pursuit and the result has been prolific. My preferences in art are varied. When I was in college in the 1970's, a print sale came to OSU twice a year. For every hour you worked, you received a free print. At first, I selected popular paintings, like Mona Lisa, Whistler's Mother, and other works by Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Picasso, Andrew Wyeth, and Currier and Ives. Then, I started selecting artists I liked. My favorites were Monet, Utrillo, and Escher. More recently, David Hockney's 'Place Furstenberg, Paris' and 'Yellow Guitar Still Life' have lodged in my mind as intriguing ideas. My photography and digital art usually fall into three categories: nature, historical, and geometrical designs. In my photography, the fascination for geometric designs manifests itself in architectural photographs. Since I love taking pictures out in the woods, it should be no surprise that my favorite photographer is Ansel Adams. My love of history leads to a lot of Americana. I also enjoy incorporating found objects in my artwork.
