From the dazzling fields of Bluebonnets to things closer at hand, like the Hummingbirds and Morning Glories in our backyard, my home place is in the Texas Hill Country. And it is here where I find my inspiration and insight into nature.
For years I painted in a realistic manner, then I visited Australia and began to realize that art is beyond national or cultural boundaries. While my technique is generally referred to as Pointillism it is actually much different in approach. I combine the movement found in the works of Van Gogh, with the inspiration derived from Australian Aboriginal Art to create a unique style. I have chosen to paint what can't be seen. It is not the color I see but the color I feel. Not just the shape but the shape's meaning. The rhythm of dots throughout the painting create an overall visual field which conveys a sense of wholeness, alive with the movement and shimmer of life.
The visual impact created by the dots, combined with the vivd colors of red, green, blue and orange are a stunning combination on these large-scale prints, and are guaranteed to bring excitement and joy to any quilting project.
