Biography


 

 
 
 
 
"The love for color has always been a large part of who I am -- recognizing its impact on setting tone, mood and feelings.  At a young age I was busy re-arranging furniture, designing doll clothes, painting everything I could find -- paper, furniture, walls in my house -- doodling, drawing and creating.  The appearance of harmonious surroundings has always given me great satisfaction and I have worked diligently to beautify the environments I inhabit.
 
The journey into expressive painting has not been a straightforward path.  Art as a full time focus came later in life -- after education, raising children and surviving various careers.  For that I am grateful as those life experiences have provided inspiration for my work.  Today my work continues to reflect an ongoing interest in people and beauty found in everyday surroundings.
 
Success for me is hearing people say that my paintings elicit feelings and unexpected emotions.  In attempting to capture the essence of my paintings in words, I find three adjectives particularly appropriate:  engaging, bold, colorful.  Simply put, making art is my way of expressing love for and appreciation of life."
