Biography


Artist’s Statement
 
 



My art is about my Journey toward Joy. Much of my art comes out of my own inner healing journey and was painted either to remind me of my value or to work through my personal thoughts and struggles about life and relationships. Many of my paintings celebrate the joy I am experiencing increasingly. My desire is for others to experience lasting joy, too.
Every day I paint, design or sketch. I have very high standards for myself and push myself continually. Getting such personal art from my head and heart onto a canvas is a challenging experience and I sometimes vary my style somewhat to communicate better. Recently I have been painting compositions based on flowers which are amazing creations yet last only a few days! I use flowers as metaphors for life. I want my art to challenge the way a viewer sees things and to bring a joyful sense of the order and “rightness” in nature.
