From my earliest days, I’ve drawn, colored, painted, shaped. Abstract painting in particular is liberating and enlivening and relaxing at the same time. When I paint, I feel like I am home. It’s that simple. Abstract painting lets me move past judgment, control and conscious decisions. I get to be in the moment of the materials, the breath and the open-endedness of what comes next.
I highly value stillness and settledness, peace within movement and transition. I resonate deeply with color and things that catch light in different ways (and sparkle!). I love to delight people and share the richness of my work with them. That’s what I have to offer.
I manifest what I prize when I paint: resonance in a deep, quiet way. I offer a splash of brightness and ease. Not all paintings need to make its viewers uncomfortable and challenged. I’ve come to realize that there is a place for all of us and the ways we manifest our creativity. If it is possible to have a painting make you feel loved, that would be a wonderful thing. I think I accomplish that from time to time. It has taken a long time to realize that this is enough.
My paintings hang in private collections in the US, Canada and Europe. Please consider purchasing a piece for your collection as well!
