My work is influenced by Sonia Delaunay, Henri Matisse, and Gustav Klimt. I am a self-taught artist who has painted professionally for over 20 years and shown my work in galleries throughout the United States. I began painting as a young girl, but due to parental influence received my degree in Journalism! I began my career as a writer. Denying what I love best did not last long for me- so I began seriously painting in 1993! My first show was in 1994.
My paintings reflect my joy in color and my optimism about life! I am fascinated by colors, shapes, textures and patterns.
I use acrylic or gouache paint and enjoy incorporating a variety of mixed media products into my painting and collages.
