About the Artist:
As an artist, J.D. grew up in Southern California back when they had farms lands and orange groves.
J.D loves being outdoors and painting landscape. She seek subjects that have something to say; old houses, farms, fields, creeks. and of course the Mountains that she grow up with. With paint, a few brushes, color and light, she try to paint a part of the landscape that brings back a memory that will touch the heart.
As a very young child as far back as she can remember she was never without a pencil, crayon or paper in her hands. She was always doodled, or coloring in her many coloring books that her mom was always buying her and when she was a young lady, she would look at many Impressionists, Expressionism, Realism, Folk art, and Ming Dynasty painting in books. With these paintings she saw places and things she knew or wanted to know more about and loved.
J.D is still learning to draws upon those early influences in a way that she looks at life, the subjects she chooses and the manner in which she paints. J.D. wants to paint nature in a way that color and light plays off the subjects to try and tell a story or feeling rather than simply recording its image.
J.D. artwork is displayed at different locations in the California with some of her art work in private collections in the USA, UK, CANADA and AUSTRALIA.
