When I was younger, like any kid, I loved to color, but I certainly didn’t consider myself an “Artist.” Over many visits to Santa Fe, New Mexico, I discovered a love for Visual Art. Although I could appreciate all art forms, I usually found myself drawn to the abstract pieces that hung in the many Galleries around Santa Fe.
My sister talked me into taking my first Art Class in Santa Fe. Since that first time, almost 10 years ago, I have taken numerous art classes during each vacation (just for fun and something to do while vacationing) and eventually stumbled across acrylics. I was hooked! What I love about acrylics is not only the forgiving nature of the medium, but also discovering what can be accomplished when creating multiple layers of paint. I enjoy art classes so much that I continue to take them with many artists whose work I admire – I feel you can always learn something with each class, each experience and each canvas.
As you can imagine over time, I accumulated a lot of art & art supplies and I eventually ran out of space in my home. I began to think, “What would it be like if I had a separate space for myself and other Artists who need a designated private space to create their work as well.” I decided it was time to expand – I purchased an older building downtown, spent over a year renovating it from top to bottom, and now I have an awesome building with awesome Art & Artists!
I consider myself very fortunate to have the support of my community – they have supported me just as I have supported them. I have donated pieces to charity fundraisers and have sold my art both locally and nationally. I love what I do and I love what my life has become. If you are ever traveling through Oklahoma, stop by and say “Hi!” I’d love to meet you.”
