Artist Statement


I take joy in knowing that my work and who I am reaches out and touches others. I'm greatly inspired by color, especially bright and dramatic colors. Colors don't merely talk to me, they SHOUT. I believe that art has its own special language. It can cut right to a basic human emotion, hold on tight and even cause one to react in some way. So, when a piece of art speaks to you, Listen!

Biography


I've been involved in art all my life as an interior decorator, jewelry designer, window display artist, actor and painter. "Over the top with a laugh or two or three" is me. I'm a colorful character who happens to love color. And I delight when what I do makes others smile, laugh, and roar. I take joy in knowing that my work and who I am reaches out and touches others.

I'm greatly inspired by color, especially bright and cheerful colors. Colors don't merely talk to me, they SHOUT! Bright colors are happy and uplifting and just plain feel good. I paint with acrylic on canvas, images inspired by nature, but whimsical, executed with more than a touch of fantasy.
I paint because I love the challenge it presents to transform a blank canvas into something of beauty, meaning and enjoyment.
