Like a river running through my life, my art continues to evolve, taking new directions, influenced and inspired by my life’s experiences. Art has helped me to become a more spiritual person, and to feel the connection that we have with each other and with all of nature. I try to share this connection through my art. I am grateful that art strengthens my appreciation for the infinite variety of colors and textures in our world.
Whether figurative or more abstract, I enjoy experimenting with printmaking, mixed media and painting. I have chosen to work with water-soluble media since 2000. I like to listen to music when working in my studio to enhance the process of letting go that leads to intuitive color choices. I usually work thematically on a body of artwork that provides new insights and opportunities for personal growth. Making art enriches my life by pushing me to experiment, to take risks, and to have fun.
