Annapolis, MD

"There is nothing bland about my work. I don’t play it safe. My art should ignite the same excitement I felt when painting it. If my work helps someone start the day with a zing, stirs a fond memory, or refreshes the senses, then I’ve succeeded."
I Bask in Color.
Color has always had a profound influence on my mood. While traveling in the American southwest in 1990 I was so moved by the colors that I promptly bought paint and canvas, hoping to convey how those colors made me feel: vivid, alive, powerful. My goal is not to capture an image, but to capture the emotion that image conjures.
Friends describe me as vibrant, passionate, and creative; those words apply to my art as well. Creating work that is fluid, that inspires energy and excitement, vitality and confidence: this gives me the greatest artistic satisfaction.
I work primarily with acrylic paint along with mixed media such as paper, fabric, wood, and plastic. I use brushes, palette knives, my fingers…whatever is at hand. Some pieces flow forth in a matter of hours. Others are built over several weeks, evolving from fragments of imagination to energetic expressions of my experiences, dreams, or aspirations.
