About

"Let the beauty of what you love be what you do."

 

As long as I can remember, I have always been drawn to bright, vivid colors which exudes a variety of emotional moods and feelings. It all began with my childhood bedroom: Bright pink walls with red and white decor. My favorite color is purple.This rich color symbolizes royalty, creativity, passion, peace, mystery, magic as it combines the stability of blue and the fierce energy of red. I enjoy exploring the vibrancy of colors and how they react to each other. Playing with yellows, chartreuses, greens, purples, blues-(an explosion of truly “organic” color)I enjoy exploring the vibrancy of colors and how they react to each other.

As I ventured out into the world, I studied Illustration & Advertising at the Columbus College of Art & Design, receiving my BFA in 1983. I experienced the corporate world of Advertising as a graphic designer for 8 years. Wanting to be of more service to others, my husband and I went into the full-time ministry for 14 years, being very fulfilled by this mission in life.

Onto a new chapter in our life, I launched canarydesign, (making art that sings). I specialized in faux finishing and interior design which provided me the opportunity to spend more time developing my portfolio of work.

In 2013 my husband suddenly passed. One of my dear artist friends, said “Chris you really need to paint!!!” Being my first love, I knew I really needed to use my art to give back through visual expression. Traumatic things really put into perspective what is really important in this life.

Back to the canvas, through splashes of color, I seek to explore the movement and energy of color as it dances through the wind.

Sometimes I’m very abstract with strong, bold forms and shapes and other times I bring flowers, fields or water to life through suggestion. My highest compliment is providing a piece of art that reflects and refreshes its owners.

When I’m not painting, you’ll find me on my bike riding the trails, teaching or practicing yoga, spending time with my two handsome adult boys or playing with my fun loving dog, Lucy.
