TRISH PAINTER, Liberty

My mother was an artist, but none of my siblings or I were ever interested in pursuing any of that. We were busy with outdoors sports etc.   When the Jenifer Sorensen, the art teacher at Snowcrest Middle School in Ogden Valley retired, she set up a studio and started giving art classes to adults.  Monday became my art night – nothing overrides art night!  Learning art has brought whole new ways of looking at the world to my left brain science-trained mind!  My goal is to explore as many different mediums and techniques as possible, and focus on developing skills in a couple of them.  My favorite mediums have been prisma colored pencils, pen/ink, pencil drawing and most recently pastels and tinted charcoal.   My influence has been the dogs in my life (who have served as wonderful subjects), and the beauty of the natural world that surrounds me where I live in Ogden Valley.  I ‘do art’ because it clears my mind, constantly amazes me, fills me with joy and makes me smile as I  appreciate the opportunity to explore this part of my creative self.   Doing art also gives me great respect for the master artists, and for those who make a living doing art.   Check out my music page at www.ravenspiritmusic.com.
