I grew up surrounded by art that my parents collected from trips around the world. Although I have always been drawn to various creative arts, including painting, photography and poetry, my educational background is as a clinical social worker. I soon recognized the healing power of art, combining art with therapy when helping young children overcome the trauma of abuse. The process of painting is meditative and spiritual as well, which is what led me as a young adult to begin painting. Since then, I have a constant tug to create and an insatiable desire to translate my thoughts and visions into paintings. My paintings are meant to capture the essence and mood of a scene rather than a detailed mirror image. I paint in a variety of mediums but especially enjoy working with soft pastels or oil paint in a loose, impressionistic style with vibrant colors. After moving to the Southwest, I became inspired by the California Impressionist movement. I paint to express the awe and gratitude I feel being in proximity to amazing desert scapes, mountains and the ocean. The sky seems larger here, which nurtures my particular fascination with clouds. However, I am also intrigued by the play of light and shadows on everyday objects. Being surrounded by nature is a deep experience with its own language that I aspire to recreate on canvas. By sharing my work, I hope to convey an intimate peek into my stunning worldview.
