Art is a passion. My paintings represent not what I see, but what I feel. I loved art as a child/teen and rediscovered my love for it as an adult. I started painting in watercolor but find myself drawn to the qualities of mixed media. I love the tactile nature of texturing a canvas. I am an intuitive painter, letting the process and what develops guide where the painting needs to go. Many times figures or animals emerge in a dream like fashion. Living on the Pacific coast I am inspired by the sounds and moods of the ocean and find that many of my pieces reflect the color and action of it. Most recently, I have discovered the joys of acrylic pouring with resin which adds an exciting compliment to my portfolio.
