Artist Statement I love to paint in oils, and to share the poetry of color and light with others. I work to create art that is accessible, powerful, and hopeful.
Using bold brushwork, I hope my use of vivid color and the drama of value contrast will capture the viewer, convey an emotion, or make the viewer pause and reflect. My subjects are varied but united by an energetic style that tells a story but maintains the presence and feel of the medium.
There is nothing more inspiring to me than the sun on green hills after a rain, or late afternoon light streaming through a window. But more mundane subjects also are sources of intrigue – shoes, pastries, plants – when treated lovingly. I am always growing as an artist, learning to simplify what I see, looking for pattern, color and subjects that elevate the routine and commonplace into art.

After studying art and art history in college, I found creative outlet, in photography, crafts, and knitting. I returned to painting six years ago and began studying again, absorbing everything I could find online and in books, and as a student of Patsy Taylor. I paint in my home studio, and study at Lafayette Studio and Civic Arts in Walnut Creek. I live in the endlessly inspiring San Francisco Bay Area, with my husband, daughter and two dogs, Rocket and Sparky.
