I have loved art for as long as I
can remember. When I was young I created plays, wrote poems, made pottery,
jewelry, drawings and explored a great many other creative pursuits. In 2003 I moved from upstate New York to the
beautiful Berkshire mountains of Massachusetts and here is where I began my journey as
In 2006 I took a week long intensive watercolor and yoga class taught by Linda
Novick at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in Lenox. In a week's time I was
hooked on watercolor! I loved exploring the
relationship between light and shadow, of mixing vibrant colors and watching
how they interplay with water. I attended IS183 Art School for several years and continue taking classes and workshops throughout the region.
In sharp contrast to my watercolors are my mixed media paintings. What I love about creating these paintings is the endless variety of different techniques and materials and of adding layer upon layer to build depth and movement within each painting. Sometimes I start a mixed media piece with a watercolor underpainting. Sometimes I collage other paintings into my work. The evolution of each painting frequently surprises me.
Painting has become my looking glass and way of examining the world around me. I am enchanted by the symbolic, the surreal, and all of nature. My current body of work is largely inspired by and celebrates the natural world.
