I have resided in many locations throughout the United States, which added the element of curiosity, joy and diversity. Currently live and work at the base of the Rocky Mountains, in a small town called Palmer Lake. Each experience has been a transformative pathway to my creative work. My appreciation of the arts began at a very early age. I began to explore various mediums; pen & ink, pencil and clay. When my son was in high school, I came back to my art and settled with the use of acrylic paint because of the vibrancy of colors. I am a self-taught artist, absorbed into rich texture and vibrant colors. During 2020, I was selected by a jury and commissioned to create a Dragonfly Sculpture for the Rotary Club's largest fundraiser of the year.
My inspiration evolves from the myriad of nature's gifts. The hues, shadows, textures and intensity of the colors are my passion. As an abstract expressionist, I strive to create paintings that are filled with a vibrational abundance of joy and have a cohesive/vibrant color palette. The colors evoked in my paintings ignite a healing essence for the observer. The natural world shares with me the ability to shift the energetic elements of each painting. The constant change of the landscape and the weather provides a magically diverse exploration into shapes, textures and colors. The images and energy of nature are brought into the studio and infused into my paintings.
