Certificate of Graduation, Kang-O-Higgins Atelier, Gage Academy of Art, Seattle, WA, June 2019
I began painting in high school and continued, on and off, through early adulthood, when I changed direction and for twenty years made quilts in the Amish tradition. In 2003 I returned to fine art and, while working full-time in another field, began studying at Gage Academy of Art in Seattle. In 2015 I entered one of Gage’s full-time atelier programs, the Kang-O’Higgins atelier, led by artist Mark Kang-O’Higgins. I graduated in June 2019.
I work in the realist and Impressionist traditions of Western representational art, although I believe, with David Hockney, that all art is abstract. My work is a response to the beautiful and curious things I see – a way of loving the world. My hope is that my paintings have a presence and share with the viewer some of the pleasure of paint.
