I am a woman, mother, artist, life partner, gardener, Writer, ecologist and musician. I am a unique one-of-a-kind creation. So are my pieces. I create them to honor the uniqueness in each moment.

I paint mostly with acrylics and inks. My process is intuitive and felt. I start with no image of the final painting. First I lay down colors, patterns, textures, drips — whatever draws me at the moment. Then, I stop and look,    turning the canvas over and over…

Waiting, sometimes days, until something emerges. Something I like, something that evokes an image in me, a sense of a beginning, a shape…


From there the painting continues, often changing dramatically. As I work with what is calling me… I am drawn to: glimpses of what previously existed — layers, colors and patterns. Hints of other realities peeking through organic shapes.

My inspirations come from: The interplay of rhythms, pulses and textures of the world. Lifes doors, windows and layers. Every returning arcs of circles and spirals. Patterns and shapes around me.
