What does creativity mean to me? Creativity is the essence of one’s ability to generate works of art through imagination and self-expression.
What is it about the St. James lifestyle that inspires my creativity? St. James inspires me because of its beautiful setting. Nature is my favorite inspiration, especially birds and water! The painted buntings and hawks are my most photographed. Listening to Jazz in my art studio helps me create my abstract paintings.
Describe the ideal environment which motivates or inspires me? I love to take pictures anywhere in nature. Coastal areas anywhere in the world are my favorite. But then I also love mountains (gorgeous in the northwest); flowers especially my prize dahlias and hibiscus.
What advice would you give a new artist? I would advise a new artist to have fun and practice often. Try new ideas. Don't be afraid to try new techniques. Take classes, explore you tube, join a group of likeminded artists. Don't make it a competition, make it an adventure!
Where is your favorite place in St James? My favorite place in St. James is my home! We live at the end of Harborside Way isolated, with views of Intracoastal Waterway, the pond and lots of birds and nature!
