I create art freely from very personal memories, dreams, and intuition–there is no right or wrong. Richly detailed, colorful, and evocative creations that spring from spontaneity and rigor, refinement and rebellion, high and low.

 

An established artist, a world traveler, and an entrepreneur, I find great joy in the seduction of color and texture. Organic, curvy, or linear, blended with reminiscence and soul. My eye is caught by the inherent beauty of nature–that is the grounding element.

 

My approach is not particularly intellectual or steeped in formal training. I'm not restrained or analytical. Instead, I prefer my mind to channel naturally and creatively, often without a pre-planned agenda. Painting is a platform where emotion, color, and memories are planted, nurtured, and harvested.

 

I paint without fear of critique or judgment. It is a gift to feel this untethered. I reside and create at studios in Venice, Florida and Kansas City.
