I highly value original art. It contains the unique dna and expression of the artist. I want my work to inspire joy and hope in the beauty of life and creation.
Creating beauty by assembling things together has been a driving force for all of my life. Mud pies, forts, and coloring took me away. Acrylics and later mixed media became my focus in adulthood. I especially loved combining collage with acrylic paint. In 2015 I began oil painting when I was given an incredible amount of beautiful oil paints.
In 2017 I am bringing an element of realism into my work while maintaining the movement and complexity of the abstract. It is a wonderful new challenge.
I have shown in Art Gallery Napa Valley on First Street in Downtown Napa since 2007.
