Profile Information

As a professional Interior Designer, I have been involved with creative pursuits for twenty-five years. Further more my creativity finds expression as a fine art studio artist and freelance writer for children’s books and spiritual healing.

My actual foray into painting began as a healing art in 1986 after a family tragedy. An angel mentor invited me to a watercolor class in the fall of that year, and I have been painting since that time. I wake up everyday to the discovery of learning and capturing life moments in an art form. I am intent on the truth of using artistic elements and various mediums: oil, watercolor, pastel, and mixed media to interpret an inner spirit about a still life or landscape or human figurative subject that is present for a painting. I learn through every painting, every teacher and every friend with whom I share a paint day.

This is a spiritual connection with all of God’s creation.

Thank you Karlene for joining our friends. You know we've been e-mailing each other throughout the year about cultural events for the Spirit of Woman program, but I had no idea what beautiful artistic talents you personally have to share - thank you for including us. We're looking forward to continuing to support all of your projects and appreciate the opportunity to keep sharing information with each other here through this great interactive site!
