I'm currently exploring mixed media abstract work inspired by the Sonoran Desert. I have a particular interest in expressionist or intuitive painting where I can meld the impressions of my surroundings with the expressions of my inner world.

receive my studio notes:

Painting my People

Being of a certain age, I find myself staying carefully at home, isolated from my extended family. I again find myself drawn to painting those dearest to me, as if I could keep them safe with my brush, my paints, my intentions.
Mixed media backgrounds add more depth and personality to the portrait. Choosing the paper, patterns or images for the background takes almost as much time as the painting itself. 
I enjoy having their beloved faces looking down from my studio shelves!
Keeping them safe with my own brand of magic spell - glue, a brush, paint and Mom's full attention.
