I began the study of art later in life (in my 50’s) while running my own home-based business (Z-Best Bookkeeping) in Manchester, NH. I had been writing for over 20 years by that time (many poems and articles published), my children were grown, and I was looking for another creative challenge. My husband encouraged me to take art classes and try something new.
As a poet I create visual images and emotions with words. As an artist, I try to connect with the essence of the image aesthetically and spiritually. I work in acrylics, pen and ink, colored pencil, watercolor and oil pastel. Locally I have taken classes with Jeanne Lachance, Kim Roth, Cameron Bennett, and other wonderful teachers. I am inspired by hiking in our beautiful state as well as by the verses and images from our Ta’nach (Bible - Torah, Prophets, Writings) and liturgy.
I sold my bookkeeping business in April of 2011 and I am continuing my art studies. I am actively working with acrylic paints now, focusing on landscapes and thoroughly enjoying my retirement. I have just started to paint with water mixable oils now. I spent 8 weeks in Israel during the winter of 2012, traveling and volunteering. I’ve continued with my writing as well, putting up new work on my blog: http://avisiblevoice.blogspot.com
My husband, Joe Smiga, is an author and I have had the privilege of supplying photos for the covers of many of his books. He has a website and blog::
