I have always loved art — the forms, patterns, colors, shapes, and stories that emanate from art. I am an artist whose path to art as I now practice it, began with graphic design. I have been engaged with creating and designing for more than 30 years.
In 2004 I took a drawing class that launched my affair with drawing and painting.
I create representational and abstract art with a range of media – pastel, watercolor, acrylic, and mixed media collage, where I am free to experiment with a range of ideas and combine paint with just about anything–scrap paper, painted paper palettes, wine foils, bottle caps, found objects, wire, etc.
I am also an avid gardener, and for me, gardening and painting go hand-in-hand; both are creative endeavors that with luck and a little skill will produce something exciting and beautiful to look at, create a memorable experience and inspire repeated practice.
