life suits me perfectly as I love my artistic solitude yet adore my people time and the ability to share my passion with workshop attendees. The blending of my two worlds emerge on my canvas... The faces I see, the natural world that speaks to me and the colors and movements that inspire me. I find myself slathering on layers of paint, collage and effervescent color then paring down with brushes, rags, sticks and stones; and then building the piece back up. The results may be figurative or totally abstract -- it is reflective of my mood of the day, the force of my energy or the impact of the music playing. For me, the medium utilized is irrelevant; it is simply the act of creation that stirs me.
When working in my studio, guiding participants at workshops and witnessing people's responses to art, I am continually amazed at the restorative impact that art holds for both its maker and audience. The heart slows, the mind focuses, the rhythm of the room transforms. This response to art has made my business desires crystallize - to bring forth calm, excitement and inspiration to the environments and homes that connect with my art. I am so grateful you have found me.
