I paint to think, to still my world and to celebrate it. I love the process of making a piece even more than the final product, so time in my studio becomes like an active journal, my visual meanderings as I put to canvas my ideas, impressions, and stories. Some evolve into pieces that remain; some never become more than the event of mark-making itself. The images I paint are drawn from my life as it unfolds - not so much what I see, but what I feel and wonder about. I enjoy working with visual metaphors to create meaning. The range of content is wide, much like the . Many of the works you will see were inspired something I encountered: a conversation, song lyrics, something I've witnessed, the exquisite world around me... I have come to thoroughly enjoy the questions we pose to one another as part of the dialogue between the artist, the art and the viewer.
I welcome you to my website! Under "Recent Works" you will see my most recent pieces at the top with older works as you scroll down. While many of them are sold, there are numerous paintings listed as AVAILABLE with a price either beside it, or visible with the artist's statement by clicking on to the image. Art cards and art prints are available on a limited selection of my work. Please refer to the "Gallery" page for more information.
I love hearing from you, the viewer! Please use the contact page to send me a message should you have an inquiry about a certain piece, about art cards, or are just curious about what you see. I promise to get back to you!
