I'm currently exploring mixed media abstract work. I have a particular interest in expressionist or intuitive painting where I can express the ideas that make up my inner world.


As a nurse dealing with patients and families facing difficult “end of life” issues, I used painting as a way to go deep into myself and escape that exquisitely painful place. Like a long deep sleep, painting would take me to a quiet, beautiful place full of color and controlled order that restored the energy I needed to face another day.

As a result, the art making process is the most important part of painting to me. It’s my own form of meditation. I love to challenge myself to learn new techniques and approaches. The artistic growth nourishes me and brings fullness to my life. The paintings contain my life energy and affirm my existence. This glorious act of creation elevates my life
in every way.
