Artist Statement

For me, my painting is about learning to see light in new and different ways, how it affects color and form. It is about developing a deeper way of expressing myself that hopefully, resonates with the viewer.  As I grow as an artist, obtaining clarity of sight has become exciting.  I paint in both acrylics and oils, with my passion being portraiture, especially vintage photos.  There is something that resonates with me in trying to capture the gesture and expression of a person at a precise moment in time.
O-144  Lavendar Fields  oil  16x20  $850

Currently, I am exhibiting with a group of seven artists –Bay Area Studio Artists (BASA) as well as curating several solo shows for the upcoming year.  Art has become an incredible focus in my life as I see where this journey may take me.  I feel like I have discovered my voice through my painting.  What an incredible experience!
