Foxy Lady ~ oil on linen 9 by 12

I began my personal art journey 11 years ago with the pastel medium. The vibrancy of the colour awakened my soul. From there, I discovered the wonderful world of oils, watercolour and acrylic. I had found my passion in life. There is always a joy in the process itself. Not a day goes by that I am not thinking of art and creativity. Most importantly, the art itself can bring joy to others ~ capture memories of time and place. Painting with a purpose took on new meaning to me when I donated a painting to our local hospital during the early days of Covid. History is filled with art throughout the ages. It is time for the North.
