Art has always been an important part of my life. My current focus is abstract subject matter, and color is often the catalyst which drives me in the beginning of a painting. The rest tends to fall into place after evolving through a back and forth process. I find daily influences from people, images, experiences, and nature. Oils are my preferred medium, but I love to experiment with different forms of mixed media to create layers, texture, and depth.
I am beyond fortunate to have a wonderful husband and three daughters who I adore. They are constant sources of encouragement. I am so excited to continue to explore with abstract and traditional painting in hopes of evoking some sort of a connection that would be compelling. It’s a wonderful way to lose track of time and as Picasso said…. "brush away from the soul the dust of every day life”
