I believe that every artist is on a journey. I used to think that one day I would finally arrive at my "style", and that that would become my signature "thing." I am now starting to realize that this is not the case. I enjoy working in a variety of mediums, from oil and acrylic paint to colored pencil. (Oil pastel has recently become one of my favorite mediums. I like that you can get a painterly quality using what is considered to be a drawing medium.) I also work with a variety of subjects, from nature and butterflies to the purely abstract. I like to work within a series format, where I stay with one technique or one subject and explore it until I'm satisfied, or until another idea takes form.
