With the encouragement of a friend who is also an artist, I took up
art in 2007, originally training under a local well-known artist and
retired art teacher. I started with oil, but have added watercolor, acrylic and mixed media as well. I
believe that creating both representational and abstract art brings the beauty
of the world around us and the people that are dear to us closer so that we can
enjoy them every day. My need to create is strong, and I enjoy experimenting
with many mediums. You will find a lot of symbols in my paintings, like medallions and elephants, which symbolize good luck, protection, wisdom and fertilityI love putting people in my paintings as this is really the
heartbeat of our existence.
I'm excited for the future of my art, as this is
just the beginning of my journey. With each passing session I look beyond the now to reach the deepest crevices
of the inner "me". It is a constant process of learning and growing.
I'm grateful for the mentoring of other more mature artists that I cross paths
with as I strive to broaden both my skills and vision to create engaging and
meaningful art for all to enjoy.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
Hope you enjoy my art!
I'm inspired by nature and the human form. I love symbols, bright colors and texture. Inspiration also comes from studying the masters and continually viewing other artists' work.
Recently I've been doing a lot of mixed media. I colorize acid-free tissue paper and use stamps, ink, watercolor and acrylic to create lots of texture in these pieces.
I belong to 3 local art associations and love to enter shows. I've been the recipient of many awards, and have received the great honor of being chosen to be part of the International Exhibition of the San Diego Watercolor Society in 2019.
