Looking to the future
There should be gallery notices and/or shows in the late fall I will keep you updated.
where I am
I now live in Tucson, Arizona. I did love San Pedro and the Los Angeles area that had so many great advantages, but it was time for a change. The desert and the mountains of Tuscon and the surrounding areas are so beautiful. Big skies and beautiful sunsets are two great beauties. The desert and its unique flora and fauna are exciting. I love walking here. My new house is lovely and has many possibilites for my artwork and jewelry design.
what I Do
I paint in oils and use colored pencil. I also work with paper and found objects for mixed media pieces. The desert landscape is sure to offer new opportunities in this area. I have painted facades on shops in the downtown area of San Pedro; they are Art Deco in design and I am thrilled that I have been able to help spruce up the area. Perhaps I will have a chance to do this in Tucson as well.
where I'm headed
I have always been an artist, but my family has always come first. Six kids, grand-kids, husband, pets etc., have always taken up much of my time. Now everyone is grown and my husband is semi-retired so it is my time at last and I have been making the most of it. I have had galleries, stores and I have shown at festivals. Here in Tucson there are sure to be many opportunities to express myself and show my art at one of the many Arizona galleries. I have my art online with Fine Art America at http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/charlarae.html .
