"My passion is painting. It’s in my DNA. The process of painting,
defining and redefining my voice on the canvas has been an intuitive and
authentic journey for 35 years working professionally as an artist… and
counting. Direct observation of everyday life and a simple
awareness of the world around me fuel ideas that "poof" into my head and
then translate to the canvas. Inspiration and energy and friendship are
endless and for this I am grateful.
Whether the art is a loose representation of an actual object or an idea
that connects with the soul…color, form, mood, light, music,
conversation, dreams and travel… all are an integral part of the
dialogue with my paints and the canvas. I am a firm believer that in
order to be a successful abstract painter, one must have the underlying
draftsmanship of drawing. Concepts are a fine balance of push and pull,
color and light, exploration and letting go of fear and often times
putting myself out of my comfort zone as a mode of impulsive growth.
We cannot be anyone other than who we are and God is always ever present
& a vast amount of spirit guides."
