Painting is my reprieve, my way to transcend the noise outside and in.
I paint from photographs and make ample use of Photoshop to explore composition. In my current work, I strive for an impressionistic style while honoring a true experience of our glorious world. I hope to stir an emotional response, but not so much to the painting as to the essence of the subject.
I began painting in earnest only in my fifties. And then, only in my spare time. Retirement offered the opportunity to re-imagine my future as a fine artist.
I love hiking the high country, and spend almost as much time on the trail as at the easel. I live in Niwot, Colorado with my husband Neal Pierman, who does fine art photography (NealPierman.com).
