Artist Statement

I paint with acrylics, gel mediums and metallic pigments on canvas and am drawn to muted tonal palettes – warm hues of blue, soft greens, gauzy yellows and shadowy greys. I love the way a little bit of metallic or iridescent medium can catch the light and illuminate a mat surface. It is exciting to me when a shimmering effect might make visible a sense of the passage of time. Through my art, I am continuously searching for peace -- exploring themes of contemplation, harmony, surrender, and stillness. My hope is that my art appeals to the imagination and intuition in a way that might evoke a sense of connectedness to something greater than ourselves.

I exhibit my work internationally and am represented in England through the Art Agency outside of London. I am also co-owner of a local gallery called, Curated. We have two locations - Capitola Village and Downtown Santa Cruz (www.curatedbythesea.com).
