I love the faded shades of red, yellow and orange the metal gets from sitting out in the sun. I like to work in bright colors, painting some pieces in bright enamel paint. I work in series – this year I have made a herd of sheep and horses, flowers and hearts. I am inspired by Art History, Folk Art and Travel, as well as artists such as Alexander Calder, Picasso, Matisse, Jim Dine and Georgia O’Keeffe. I sell my work to stores and go to Art Shows in the Northwest.
