Shell Dreams of Sanibel
Oil on Board
24" x 24" x 1.75"
This is a memory of two sister shell artists shelling at Sanibel Island in matching polka dot bathing suits before the island was destroyed by a hurricane. Sadly, going back may only be in our dreams.
I am a Professional artist with a Fine Art Degree and minoring in Education. Working for decades, I have done it all, teaching, wall murals, portraiture, plein air, commercial renderings, neon and plastic signs, floral design, fabric arts and jewelry. My experience in most mediums is extensive with oil, pastel and collage as favorites. I've received accolades and Gallery representation with sales to Hospitals, commercial projects and collectors throughout the States. I continue to paint, teach, and tenaciously study past masters. Now having fun is a priority, I am motivated to create a new body of work. These paintings will be a continuance of ideas developed back in college but with a more educated approach.
