Artist Statement Thank you for visiting to see my paintings.

My vibrant and colorful paintings aim to uplift your spirits and encourage your imagination. I hope to share a different and unexpected view of our common humanity and the beauty of our magnificent world.
As a former psychotherapist, I am inspired by my work with children. Their direct and innocent view of the world allows me to experiment, have fun, and let go of previous expectations.
Starting with random shapes and colors, I open my mind to all possibilities. Different images emerge, take shape and suggest outlines and definition. Dreams, my view of the world, spiritual experiences and intuitive feelings find their own place into my pieces. I enjoy the process and the surprise of letting my paintings evolve organically.
For the last few years, a chronic disability no longer allows me to stand and paint at an easel. Fortunately, I found a new medium for my creative expression: “Art with a Digital Brush”. I use a stylus as my brush on a graphics tablet, plus the keyboard to select colors and different media. The monitor shows the painting as it evolves. This allows me to mix paint, use different brush strokes, and create the illusion of texture, oil paints, acrylics, water colors, pastels and more.
I continue to see myself as a painter, because my pieces are original creations. I never use outside art or graphic manipulation to enhance my work.
My finished images are printed on canvas in a variety of sizes. My work is authentic, with the extra benefit of allowing me to print limited editions.

Thanks again for visiting my website. I hope you come back to see my new paintings. You can reach my by e-mail at:

All the best to you
