My passions are creating and inspiring, and I wake up each day in hopes of combining the two in every endeavor. I love to paint and work with acrylics, often combining stains, metallic leafs and powders, and textured mediums into my pieces. Drawn to movement, my pieces are an interplay of light, movement and texture that captivates magination and wonderlust. Finding beauty in unusual objects and places, I use unconventional tools and
techniques to create imaginative, one-of-a-kind works of art. My goal is to create a painting for the buyer that will add flair and a special dimension to the space where it will reside.
