"There is no better place to be than in the middle of creating a good painting"
I am a self taught working painter and lawyer. I love color and the idea of entering a painting and seeing what comes out on the other side.
I primarily work in saturated vivid watercolor on paper, very different from most watercolor painters. My abstract paintings are usually large (some 3 by 5 ft) original paintings mounted on board with additional layers of resin and paint. I enjoy the physicality of painting big and the messiness of pouring the resin.
I have been recognized in both the art and corporate world with solo corporate exhibits (American Airlines) 50 juried exhibits (winning 'Best of Show") and am in collections across the U.S.
My quirky girls, trees and landscapes (which are on paper to be framed or can be mounted on board and finished with encaustic) are all from my imagination.I know it's a good painting when my girls start to look back at me.
The best compliment I have ever received was that my paintings always start a conversation. I paint because it makes me happy.
I hope they make you happy too!

Q&A

How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"I often have to trick my brain by starting and telling myself I MUST do a bad painting first. Otherwise, the rational side of my brain will keep telling me to do the dishes, etc and that” art is silly “ and has no value. Once I start the project of the “bad painting” that part of my brain seems to let go and get quiet so I can have fun. That’s when the creative process gets a jumpstart for me."

Q&A

What funny moments, unexpected surprises, or obstacles have you encountered?

"I had a large group of red haired girl paintings I was reviewing and the negative part of my brain said to ‘stop painting them ‘ since anyone I knew that wanted one had already purchased it. The kind part of my brain said “I like to paint them because it’s fun”. I asked out loud “what am I going to do with ALL these red haired girls? “

An hour later, I received an email from a stranger with the title “two girls”. It was from a local business owner who did not know me but had searched the words “fine art” (which were NOT in my website). She was a legitimate buyer and next day I sold her two of my favorite girls. She later told me that she had never had a party that people eventually didn’t end up in front of those two girls discussing them."
