Refreshments and Live Music
Little events change our lives in big ways. It’s called happenstance. I could never have guessed that being a flight attendant would set my art career in motion. But life changed the day I was called out for an unexpected trip to Paris. So what does one do with 24 hours in the city of light? The Louvre of course, and seeing a collection of Russian Icons. Yes, I was captivated and I knew I wanted to recreate this gorgeous art form.
I really didn’t know where to begin. Even though I studies art in college, I hadn’t picked up a brush in ages, let alone painting icons! I was happy flying my trips and having a steady paycheck. But something was calling me. So with a little natural talent and a lot of time off, I started experimenting. I tried everything under the sun.
It’s been many years and I’ve been creating old world inspired art ever since. Yes, my style is kind of unusual but I want my viewers to feel like they’re looking into the past. I make my own canvas to get an aged effect and I build intricate frames around each image for another layer of art. I don’t use patterns. I just work piece by piece until I know it’s done.
