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.


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 beginning,

a shape…


From there the painting continues

Often changing dramatically

as I work with what is calling me…
