Bio: I am a retired teacher, having taught in Palatine District 211. I studied at the College of DuPage, the DuPage Art League and with private teachers. I have exhibited in local libraries for the past few years.
Theme: Creation-Centered fits my art work. I don’t paint from photos or nature. I create paintings strictly from my mind and feelings. I usually start with a feeling. Then I apply water to the canvas. Applying ink to the water starts the process. What happens to the ink spreading through the water gives me a direction. I try to envision the subject through the results of the ink flow. My excitement and interest is created according to the colors I use. So my paintings are dictated purely through the creative process.
