Biography


When I make a painting, it happens in a flow, like breath. A spontaneous impression of color and movement. Looking at a photo of someone or at the composition of a landscape may trigger my inspiration, but color is where it really starts for me - whether my subject matter is faces, plain air landscapes, or the figure, whether I’m working in pastel or in acrylic. I’m drawn to the yellows and greens in a landscape and the tones in a person’s skin. The closer you look, the more color you see. In many ways, color is my theme.
 
My painting took a different path back in 2016, Fluid abstract , acrylic resin and mixed media have found their way onto my canvases and wood boards. Paintings by Pablo Picasso and Frida Kahlo influence my work – Picasso for his bold abstract images of women, and Frida for her vibrant colors and the way she captures so much about herself in her selfportraits. I like the way her paintings look you right in the eye, no hiding and her self expression is well, selfless! Frida Kahlo’s work draws from the indigenous cultures of Mexico as well as symbolism and surrealism from European influences.New York City is one of favorite Muses.
 
I was born in Philadelphia and have lived in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, for my entire life, and I am also fortunate to have a rich cultural background to draw from. I paint from within and have taken painting classes through out my life....Encaustic wax and acrylic resin being my new favorite mediums.
