By the Artist about her work: I am an expressionist painter who is recognized by my use of vibrant color, bold brush stroke, and expressive lines which seek to recreate the emotion I feel as I am inspired by my subjects. My artistic world is a rendezvous point where romantic figures interact with their color environments, creating songs of love. Relationships between elements are explored using the authentic voices of beauty and harmony.

I find much of my inspiration in gardens, including my own, which bursts with many colorful and fragrant flowers and fruits. As all of creation started in a garden, my creative endeavors also start there. I see life with a brand new sense of joy and wonder which spawns new ideas and encourages me to see truly as I am separated from the external world of illusion. In my work I use many symbols, weaving them together to create dream landscapes. Stars combine with oceans, which then flow into figures or flowers. Time is not important here.

I’m passionate about the process of painting, how the paint glides on from one color to the next, and what happens when they meet. I love color and pattern and how the brush touches the canvas. Creating is a sacred process and my aim is to invite you, my guest, to take an intimate look through my eyes and hands via my canvases.

I believe humans are given the desire for art as a means to both glorify their creator and to fill their lives with beauty in ways no other worldly things can. A fabulous piece of art can radiate life, warmth, and peace to the viewer.
My artwork will bring joy and beauty to your life and home. See for yourself how great owning an original work of art can make you feel.

It’s not about me, what I can do, It’s about what Christ can do through me.
“The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection.”-Michelangelo
