Artist Statement

After a fulfilling career as a Creative Director in Corporate America I decided to pursue my dream of becoming a full-time working artist. I felt it was a true calling and have never looked back. Now I am busy showing my work through art shows, creating unique commission pieces, as well producing a retail product line. I also teach online art classes for anyone looking to find that creative spark or for artists wanting to brush on some new techniques. Inspiring others through color and joy is what I set out to do each day.

My favorite art mediums that I love to use are acrylics and watercolor paints. My paintings are a blend of abstract art and realism, and my technique is one of a fluid, intuitive style. Many layers are created by lines and marks, as well as various tools and paints. I love to draw, paint and create colorful art every day. I am happiest getting lost in the process of the details and layers that make up my art. I work with colors that make me happy - reminiscent of the beauty that is all around us. Just every day simple beauty. Orange and pink, turquoise and red. They are magical when painted together.
