About Me

My Background


As far back as I can remember, I loved to paint and draw.  Starting with drawing and painting as a little girl, painting figurines for my family members and creating sculptures and abstract paintings in high school.  As an adult, I find peace in painting abstract paintings.  It brings me great joy to share these creations with you.

My Medium


I use many different mediums, such as gesso, acrylics, oils and metallics.   Painting is a fluid experience often depending on my mood and inspiration.  I have many styles of abstract paintings.  It just depends on what is calling me.   The paintings manifest through me as natural as the flow of water down a stream.

My Inspiration


I  see beauty in nature and feel a direct connection to its essence.  Gardening is meditative for me and I enjoy the beauty, which leads to my inspiration.

Meditation also allows me to become a blank canvas where seeds of ideas can be planted.
