Ever since I can remember, I have loved creating art. Painting, photography, jewelry, or ceramics, art is my passion.


I was raised in Westchester County, New York. I have lived in Boston, Marnia Del Rey, California and  for the past 21 years Jupiter, Florida has been my home. Over the last few years, painting has given me the opportunity to freely express myself.  

 

I approach my canvas like a two dimensional sculpture. Painting allows me to use color, texture and movement to sculpt my emotions. This creative force is so intense that  I am unable to stop until the last touch of paint has been applied to the canvas. 

 

Acrylic paint gives me a fabulous color pallet that aids my process. I can’t think of any other medium where expression is so fulfilling.


I received my B.A in Psychology from the University of California, Santa Barbara and also received my Graduate Gemologist, Graduate Jeweler Gemologist and Graduate Jeweler Manufacturing Arts from The Gemological Institute of America.


I have been greatly inspired by Dale Chihuly, Jackson Pollack, Alexander Calder and Frank Gerry as well as many other great artists.

ARTIST STATEMENT

 

Painting creates a sense of freedom for my heart and soul to communicate.  Accessing that raw emotion, I create abstract work that validates my personal commitment to healing, growing and evolving.  I playfully sculpt the paint using movement and energy to create a textured, visual punch of color with a burst of excitement.  My inspiration comes from nature’s beauty as well as the urban landscape of concrete, steel and glass (water dancing in fountains, uneven pavement, changing cloud formations or aerial views of the earth’s patterns).  My passion is to share these visual treats and to influence the viewer’s journey, seeing color, light, shapes and forms that give them a new perspective on life.
