What will my art be judged on?

Since there is no theme, what is the juror looking for?

  • Shape - Is the shape interesting and does it flow.

  • Composition - Is there an interesting composition, how does your eye flow and move across the work.

  • Color - Does the color create harmony and how the color works together. 

  • Value - the degree of light and dark, contrast to make an interesting work.

Growing up in Utah I was always fascinated by the colors I would see in nature... How the moonlight would reflect off the new snow, the way autumn would come with such vibrant reds and oranges, the colors playing along the walls stemming from the prism sitting in a windowsill.

I was always drawing or coloring something. My first watercolor piece hung in Marion Hotel Salem Oregon when I was in 8th grade.

Then life happened and I put art on hold. I went back to college and received an Associate of Fine Art upper division levels. 

I have taught workshops, classes and individual lessons for 10 years in Texas in Watercolor, Drawing and Colored Pencil and feel my greatest achievement to date was having a Colored Pencil piece receive the McGivney Award in Galveston Tx and now is a part of the Rosenberg Library permanent collection.
