I have been an art lover since I could hold a crayon and paint with my fingers. Making art made me feel alive, soothed my soul, and was always my friend.
The beauty of the human face, especially the eyes, show depth of the soul and emotion. As a therapist and spiritual director, I have spent many hours looking into the eyes of my clients, understanding their hearts and holding a safe place for them to discover their authentic selves. Because of this inspiration, I love to bring human images often with a little whimsy, into my art.
Staying true to self, learning the dance of resistance and fear, embodying inspiration from nature, and observing the beauty and movement of color are inspirational factors from which my art flows. I consider painting an act of worship; my soul connecting with God’s inner voice expressing my uniqueness through art.
My desire is truly to brighten the world with my art. If a collector feels joy and connection with whimsy and/or nature from viewing one of my paintings then I have expressed what I intended from the beginning. If they see or feel an aspect of themselves expressed, then my painting has had a positive impact. Each painting is started with an intention from my heart to follow my soul intuition as I paint. I want all those impacted by my art, to see the beauty and depth of the creative process, drawing them into a whimsical story set in a magical organic background with a deeply intricate expression of image, hopefully delighting their soul!
