Expressing myself creatively has been a passion of mine throughout my life. I continue to paint that which gives life special meaning to me, in the hope that others will feel touched by the beauty of what I see. Helen Keller said, ‘’the best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.’’ This is what I hope to achieve with my art.

Expressing myself creatively has been a passion of mine throughout my life.

As a teenager, I designed and sewed clothes for a children’s boutique. As an adult, I created contemporary off-loom weavings. Later, I owned and operated a company specializing in commercial and residential Interior Design. While living in Australia, I published a cook book entitled, ‘’Best of Both Worlds.’’

 

     During my travels around the world, I use my camera to capture places and events. Never did I expect that one day in 2006 I would be using these photographs to create a sketchbook of ideas from which paintings would be created. I continue to paint that which gives life special meaning to me, in the hope that others will feel touched by the beauty of what I see. Helen Keller said, ‘’the best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.’’ This is what I hope to achieve with my art.

My friend, Doris Barks, a portrait artist, when referring to my work, said, ‘’You have an eye for detail, intuitive use of line and design in your composition, as well as gorgeous color, which gives great clarity to your highly individualistic and refreshing artwork. Your art is a lovely addition in any décor - office or home.’’
