I am a contemporary impressionist and abstract painter, and use a variety of mediums in my work, ranging from water based oils, paint sticks, charcoal and acrylics to encaustics. My favorite subject matter are boats, landscapes, florals and also whimsical still life compositions. Inspiration for me can be found in mountains, lakes, beaches and gardens, and I try to spend as much time as possible outdoors.
When I am not painting, I am a parent to three, wife to one. I am a late stage, neurological lyme disease patient and work a great deal with others who are ill to find testing and medical care. I am obsessed with my giant Siberian Shepherd dog who makes sure that I laugh as much as possible.
A wonderful client once wrote that she was on a home tour and saw one of my paintings. "It was as if the room stood still and all I could see was this spectacular focal point that made everything around it pale by comparison. Your style, texture and palette have that unique ability to bring a room to life!" That is all I could ask for!
