I am moved to make art in order to share some of the beauty I see around me. Beauty, not just in the traditionally beautiful such as sunsets and mountains, but beauty found in random compositions which the human eye imposes — juxtapositions of colors, shapes and lines. To me great paintings are akin to […]

When I inherited the role of family photographer—my husband, a perfectionist with the camera and not quick enough to capture the moment, my preferred m.o.—a new passion emerged […]

As an artist I work hard to develop images that reflect my interest in surrealism. Some of the major surrealistic artists are one’s you may be familiar with, such as Salvadore Dali, Rene Magritte, Max Ernst and Leonora Carrington.

In creating my art, I have always been drawn to the form known as “narrative art. While this seems to run counter to contemporary trends, which seems to favor shock subject matter and novelty of technique, it has been for me, a deeply satisfying direction. Also, contrary to the popular slick finish offered by digital […]
