Unexpected moments in my everyday life cause me to stop, notice, and explore. My paintings range from realism to the more abstract: inspired by life forms, light, and color, designed as nature's close-ups, still life, and portraits. My intuition guides me, and my paintings slowly evolve as I layer numerous veils of transparent colors.
I paint what deeply inspires me: the ripeness of berries, attitudes of three Irish sisters, the play of light on figures and still life, unique personalities in portraits, and themes of universal connections and emergence in abstracts.
I also write art-related poetry and stories.
