About the Artist

For me, painting is a deeply engaging experience. I am fascinated by living things: seed pods, plants, animals, human beings. My starting point is to muse about the subject and see what draws and inspires me. I enter the process there and enjoy it, responding to the colors, textures, shapes, and design. I love brilliant color, and am intrigued by the surprises that emerge as I add new layers. Acrylics are my favored medium because they allow for constant change, experimentation, and discovery. Painting offers me the practical and metaphorical reminder that there are always opportunities to move forward and change. I add another layer, another texture, and the painting gradually emerges.
