Artist Statement

Artist Statement:

When I retired from hairstyling I started to paint . I had always dabbled in drawing , painting , stained glass , paper toll, jewelry making as well as being very active in my hairstyling career  that involved  hair competitions.   I was the hairstylist of the year twice , was a bc champion twice and  was on the Canadian team in the worlds competition 1 time . I also had a master judge degree , so I could [ and did] judge many contests . To get that degree I  had to take art classes on what to look for .    It was not to do with painting just basis art forms ,   focal point  secondary focal point , balance ,colour harmony ,lights and darks , mood ,  flow from one area to the next, drawing your eye around  the entire area ,  drama, texnique and expertise in creating a finished  look and mostly  that WOW factor. When I started to paint it came very easy to me   because  I was one step ahead  because all of the above are  also needed in  creating a painting .

 I always tell a store in one way or another in my paintings to connect with the viewer . In  a portrait I always put items in that tell you who this person is . In other  images you may have to look to find the story  but it is there . 

 I am mostly a representational painter  but I am always trying out new things to take me out of my comfort zone because that is when my creativity  awakened  and I learn the most . I think most artist never feel they have learned everything  and that is what makes art so exciting  one is constantly evolving  and creating  always eager to start that new painting .
