Hillside Houses: Oil and palette knife
My artwork reflects my interest in architecture and fascination with European civilization. I’ve always loved traveling and exploring even the most quiet corners of small towns, and thus I’ve turned to photography as a means to document these impactful adventures. In my photos, I attempt to capture small everyday images that portray the beautiful simplicity of life that’s often overlooked.
My husband and our two daughters, have patiently waited in the cobblestone streets of various villages as I take these pictures, allowing me to bring home the simple moments that inspire my paintings.
While I now focus my work on these far off places, I originally began studying acrylic and oil mediums when living in Pittsburgh, PA and metro Detroit. Through these studies, I’ve found myself particularly drawn to oil, eventually falling in love with the ability to carve out life’s raw moments on canvas using a palette knife.
