Welcome to my virtual studio tour - just a quick minute to see my space reinvented a bit! This is where art happens! I feel very blessed to have such a beautiful space to work in - and now that I've moved things around - more space to breathe.
I am fascinated right now with underwater images. Not just the images, but the process of getting in the pool with my models and trying desperately to stay submerged while taking photos with my rather temperamental GoPro - or maybe it's just me. But I love being under the water. The figures appear weightless and very real. It is hard to be other than yourself while swimming in a dress or jumping in and climbing out of a pool over and over again. Lovely things happen, interesting things happen, wonderful light and reflections happen - what's not to love?
This video is only the 2nd time I have tried stop action and while it is less than professional it illustrates in quick time how I begin a painting and then, the end result. I decided to call it Goggles, but Bubbles would be a good name too. What do you think? Go to the Water page in my gallery to see more underwater paintings. Here's a sneak peek...
When not in my studio I like to spend time with family, go to nurseries, the beach and farmer's markets, eat really good food and dance in the kitchen. I believe in kindness.
