Artist's Statement

I invite you into my Serendipity Junket Studio - a delightful, unexpected discovery, on a pleasant journey. I want to bring my viewers into my art by using traditional subjects with a twist in technique, color, or execution. I delight in the unexpected. I invite you to see the sometimes simple, sometimes complex approach to my art, and in turn, appreciate the serendipitous results. I paint and create intuitively. My work is always different. My inspiration is Nature's glorious displays - always changing. I look for the unusual. I love working in a variety of media because of the challenges and exciting results each one offers to my art. I just lay down color as an underpainting and let it lead me where my intuition compels me to go. This approach to my art is always exciting, challenging, and fulfilling. I am thankful for the talent and inspiration given to me by the Great Spirit.
