Welcome To Dayle Ann Stratton

Though my paintings represent real places and people, I look for the essence of my subject. I try to communicate that essence in my paintings, and often focus more on the relationship of form than detail. This blog is aimed to educate everyone about health and art

I am drawn to form, light, color, and texture, and seek out ways to express those things. I work in various media, including oils, acrylics, pastels, and kiln-formed glass. I’ve found that there are common elements that emerge for me in each of these mediums.

I can’t remember a time in my life I wasn’t making art. For me, it is a kind of journal, exploring my immediate world, using art to open my eyes. Anything could become art, and the art itself becomes a story to share with other people.   I am still exploring, and always will be.
