Artist Statement

I’m so excited to share my art and photography here with all of you and to be included in this amazing group of artists!  I hope you enjoy it!

What I Do: I love working in a variety of mediums and subjects, but I’ll be focusing here on sharing some of my abstract paintings, as well as my scenic and nature photography.

Why I Do It:  Creativity has always been a part of who I am. I’ve enjoyed photography since I was a child, and now also enjoy painting and drawing.

The act of making art has opened up a new world to me-- and brought new meaning and joy into my life.  It has gotten me through some of the most difficult times of my life, including becoming a breast cancer survivor.  Artmaking has been an incredible healing journey for me.

How I Work:  In my acrylic paintings, I’m experimenting with both carefully planned compositions and more intuitively guided pieces, both of which I will showcase here.  I tend to work in many layers, contributing to the feeling of depth and complexity in many of my pieces.  In my photography, I love to capture the beauty of the natural world around me, creating compelling compositions that showcase nature at its best.  I am told that my love of color and texture, both real and implied, is a common thread carried throughout my art and photography.
