Fine Line Ink Drawing
After many years of drawing, I have developed my own unique style which is characterized by intricate line drawn images, layers of value, and fine detail. My focus is on the integrity of the line, yet, in the process of drawing familiar objects in detail, there is also an abstract, fanciful and whimsical expression in my pieces. The accidents and surprises are what make a brave new world appear with movement and life.
I have always loved to draw which led me to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Art from Western Oregon University. I worked for a short time as a graphic artist and had a career as a Research Analyst. After raising my three sons, I re-entered the art world in Salem, Or. In the last 2-1/2 years, I've received several awards and recognition for my work. I was awarded First Place and Honorable Mention at the 2014 Keizer Art Association juried “Black and Gray” show. In 2015, I was awarded First Place in the 2-Dimensional category in the Red Raven Gallery “Steampunk” show
