‚ÄčEarly work, acrylic on canvas

       1998-2008 

* samplings of early works dating from 1998 to 2008. These pieces were the perfect  launch back to fine art with canvas and acrylic paint. I had spent such a long time at the drafting table, then the classroom, and with my own children. I needed to feel the paint and brush again, to find comfort with it ~ then to find transformation, where the image becomes a voice, uniquely my own.
