I am both extremely right and left brained. By day, I work in Technology and I rediscovered my love of art after about 20 years of doing (almost) nothing creative!
I studied art in college but ended up with a Business degree. A few years ago, I picked up set of PRISMACOLOR pencils and realized just how much I love to sketch. In 2010, while on a business trip in Oregon, I was doing a little site seeing with a friend at an art gallery. It was winter and a woman approached me to comment on the jacket I was wearing. We had a great conversation about art and she told me that she hosts painting trips/ workshops all over the world. About 3 weeks before their 2010 trip, I reached out to her to see if she remembered me....AND SHE DID! They had one opening left. Could the universe be conspiring to get more right brain out of me? I threw caution to wind and went by myself (with a group of people) to the Amalfi Coast to study watercolor and plein air painting/sketching. And then I was hooked again.
After a few commissions, I discovered a whole new world of digital art which emulates traditional art with a pressure sensitive monitor/tablet, stylus, and software (I use ArtRage), you can create just about anything. Check out my Gallery for some of my works.
