Most of you know my mantra "Do as much as you can for as long as you can". I surround myself with creative women who always inspire me to do my best work. One of my dearest friends B.J., created this wonderful jewelry that I am wearing (I also wear it when I paint). She sometimes makes pieces especially for me and always captures the colors that I am drawn to. Soon she and I will have an open studio where more of her creations can be seen. In the meantime, my art work will hang in the Saratoga Library along with several other talented women friends during the month of May. Stop by and see what we're all about.
As an artist I am inspired by places and people I have met. I turn ordinary moments and memories into the extraordinary. My love of bold color and simply strokes celebrate women in a very positive way. My images tell a story, my story some shy some bold. They express a universal rhythm that reminds others of their own stories, seen in a myriad of color. I also love giving life to old worn chairs. How fun is that! Working in acrylics and oil I also enjoy ink. Time flies so quickly and people and places reappear in my mind one after another. I feel totally free to paint what I feel which is possible because etched in my memory are so many amazing events . My story is many cultures and many backgrounds that inspire my mood painting. Long walks and my garden feed my creative spirit. Sights and sounds often ignite a passion to paint which I do daily. My paintings are in private collections in the United States, China, and Canada. Being creative, is a way of life.
