A Bit Different
I am a wife, mother, and artist. I believe art should make the world a better place. Because I feel so strongly that we as humans should help others, a portion of the proceeds from every print I sell on Etsy goes to various charities. I think long and hard about each charity and try to link them to the painting.
I love to paint, but not in the typical manner. Oh, I enjoy working with acrylics, oils, and pastels (though not watercolour although I like the look of it), but mostly I paint digitally. My method is very similar to how I would paint with other mediums, but I have found I paint very differently from most other digital artists. I suppose it comes from having taught myself long ago. I was the first digital artist my university ever had back in the 90's. At the time, I painted pixel by pixel on a Mac Classic with no hard drive. Things sure have changed since then.
My photography is varied, but what I most enjoy is creating something that gives a different view of the normal. Beauty can be found everywhere, and it is the artist's job to make it visible.
