I’ve always been someone who feels emotions deeply. I think that’s why painting has been such a tender friend to me over the years.
Song lyrics and poems, passages from a book and pictures in my mind would flow through me and move deeply into my soul. Painting and writing would become dear companions to me. I could settle the pieces of my soul there and let them rest.
Through painting, poems, and stories, I’ve often found a sense of comfort, healing and authentic expression.
There’s nothing like hearing a song, seeing a painting, or reading words and having the realization that someone else has felt this too,  someone else knows this too.”
Feeling seen. Common ground. Hope. Community. Connection. That’s what painting has always felt like to me.


It's all about

I do my best work, when I am able to get out of my own way and just let whatever needs to emerge flow through me.
Most of my paintings have words, poems or musings written on them, either visibly (even though usually illegible,) or below many layers of paint and paper.
This meditative practice allows me to tune into the painting that is waiting to emerge, and infuse it with that special energy and intention!
Female faces are my first love! I may do other subjects at times, but I always come back to the female face. There is something about light and shadow playing on a female face, coupled with what's going on in her eyes that has me totally fascinated! Water, another love of mine, has added to that fascination. Water is such a mystery in itself - in my art, I explore how it carries emotions and alters perceptions.
It's such a joy for me when my art speaks to somebody, when they feel moved or changed in some way. I am so grateful to be able to share my heart and soul in this way.

Now there is something I never thought I would say - me an artist!
If you had said that to me 15 years ago, I would have seriously doubted your sanity! I was pretty set in my belief that I could never be an artist. Artists had talent - I had none! Artists went to art school - I sure didn't!
I was a digital scrapbook designer, avid crafter and all around creative, but I was hopeless when it came to painting or drawing. So, how did I go from there to where I am today? Read on!

I am a self-taught mixed media artist, living in Phoenix, Arizona with my husband, teenage boy/girl twins and a variety of pets!
