Horse in Bluebonnets (Lupines)
Having a BA in Biology and MS in Geosystems and a science educator for 25 years, nature has been an inspiration my entire life. I have been motivated to paint since winning my first art competition in 4th grade. I have been blessed to be able to see nuances in color and to have had brilliant instructors who taught me the mysteries of mixing pigments. I love the emotional response a person has when recalling a memory of a special place so landscapes filled with rock crevices and floating clouds or dancing shadows are my favorite subjects but I also enjoy painting wildlife and moving figures. I hope the viewer can find a peaceful solace when viewing my paintings.
