My love for the ocean started when I was a kid. My Aunt Athalie took all 9 of us cousins to the tide pools in La Jolla and Ocean Beach, which were filled with shrimp, crabs, fish, anemone, octopus and more. I could have visited the tide pools every day forever! When I moved to Hawaii, my life was all about the ocean. Here in Coronado, I am surrounded by salt water. There is another universe within the ocean.
Like my love for the ocean, my love of art started as a kid; my grandmother painted with me. Creating art has been a constant in my life. I love using acrylic paints for the bright colors and versatility. I also like playing with other mediums and using recyclables to make art.
Years ago I started painting animals involved in human activities, silly pieces to spark a smile. With prompting from friends, I have decided to share them on my website. I paint these on cardboard and frame the originals in refurbished frames. They help me utilize my less serious fun side and give me a reprieve from realistic painting. They are also available as prints in the folder called MINDSCAPES. I hope you like them.
If you are interested in an original, contact me and I will let you know which paintings are still available. I will be showing and selling my art in Balboa Park, CA on various weekends during the year. Hope to see you there! Look on the website (http://www.sdcama.com) for the 2019 Art In The Park dates and location in the park.
Thanks to my husband, art promoter (and a whole lot more), Frederick, for designing this website.
