Creating Art

I've always known that my path is to be a creator, an alchemist, a transformer of reality. Give me a surface and I will paint on it, draw on it, paste on it. There is nothing more satisfying than making something where there once was nothing. To feel the brush on the canvas or the pencil on the paper is an empowering experience, and a passionate one. In my career I have created enormous murals and landscape paintings, and also humble little watercolors of fruit and flowers. To jump from the startling to the intimate is my pleasure and my purpose. Contact me.

Maud Simmons self portrait

Almost any artist will tell you that they hate it. They want to paint what they want, and really, 'How dare you tell me what to do'? In this arena, I am an exception to the rule. I love the challenge, the puzzle, of creating artwork for a specific purpose. I enjoy the interchange of visual ideas with a client, and working out the 'plan' for a piece. There is a spark that occurs when a painting is created for a certain space, or occasion. Several years ago I was commissioned to paint a large piece for a client who had 2 dogs, a cat, and a huge collection of snow globes. Ultimately I painted all the animals in a snowy forest scene within a snow globe. When the client came to see the finished piece he actually started crying. Now, that is thrilling!
