Mathematics, Computer Science and Art
Yes they do go hand-in-hand. All follow rules, all are creative! I have oscillated
between art and science since grade school. I have always loved math. My father and I
would sit at the kitchen table and solve word problems for the fun of it. In my teen years I especially loved
to draw portraits. I received my Bachelor's of Science degree with a major in Computational
Mathematics while also taking drawing and photography courses.
Discovering Watercolors and Acrylics
While working in Software Engineering, I pursued my art at night taking several years of weekly
Watercolor classes with a local artist,
Angelina Wood (1930-2003)
While raising my children, I took a hiatus from Software Engineering and subsequently home schooled my children. I found some time to
watercolor and also took an
Acrylic painting class
Art School and Oil Painting
Once my children were integrated into public school, I went back to pursue a BFA in Painting. There I had classes
in Design, Watercolor, Oil Painting and Art History. During that time, I had a room exhibition
at the Medfield Plesh Park Street Art Gallery.
I put the completion of my degree on hold in order to return to engineering to help put my children
Oils and Pastels
While engineering consumed most of my time for the next decade, I returned to oil painting as a weekend painter. In 2019, I retired from engineering and began working full-time in art. It wasn't long that I started my obsession with soft pastels. I am very excited to be finally be immersed in painting in all media as I pursue my passion!
