As a child, one of my favorite pastimes was coloring….and I’m still doing that ~ just with a paint brush instead of a crayon. I’ve never had any formal training and each new canvas is an experiment playing with colors.
My husband and I have lived in Dimondale for the past 27 years and have raised three incredible kids. They are a huge support system and are always encouraging me to try new ideas.
Painting abstracts on canvas is a relatively new venture for me. Prior to that I painted mostly on wood surfaces like plates and bentwood boxes. My designs are very whimsical and highly detailed. Now expanding with canvas, I love the juxtaposition of intricate designs versus abstract.
I have an Etsy shop called TheRubyPig (www.etsy.com/shop/therubypig) and also do custom orders.
Bekki will be here at Dimes Brewhouse on Sunday, January 13 from 3 to 5 PM. Come meet her and talk about art!
