INSPIRATION 

Taking ideas from love of nature, interior design and architecture.

 

My goal is to connect to people with my art.  I have always had a love for interior design and love the ways a piece of my art can give life to a space. I love the process of painting and actually working with my hands along with paintbrush to create a one of a kind original piece of art. 

 

HOW I GOT STARTED 

I have been an artist for over 20 years. Prior to becoming a full time artist, I worked in advertising as a Graphic Designer for 9 years. I minored in painting and when we adopted our girls Ella and Emma, I was a stay at home mom and I started painting daily, creating my style of work and building my art career.

Artist Statement  

 

I have grown up with an appreciation for art. My mother is an artist and as a young child I would watch her paint. She remembers on family beach trips I would draw in the sand for hours and knew one day that I would become an artist. Now my appreciation has turned into my passion and career that I love.

 

Inspired by the legacies of abstract expressionist (Georgia O’Keefe), French Post-Impressionist (Paul Gaugain), Italian portrait painter (Amedeo Modigliani) and Austrian symbolist painter (Gustav Klimt). I am also continually inspired by environment & rhythms of nature, my work explores abstracts, abstract landscapes and figure work, communicating in a ethereal refined manner, creating glowing illumination of color and use of variety of texture giving pieces dimension.

 

Depending on what I am working on decides my mindset. For my figure work the process is more precise, for my abstracts and landscapes blending, layering of colors and the use of texture is a big proponent of my process.  

The end result is to build work creating a blend of ethereal with sublime.
