Palace of Versailles, France


Always a painter from a young age, I am inspired by objects of the world around. I love to travel and I'm inspired by the beautiful things I see in the many places I've visited all over the globe.  Everything I see, I want to paint in an abstract way.  Some days it’s linear and some days it’s circular and fluid. 

I am drawn to bright colors and items that evoke happiness.  Flowers seem to be a big draw for me.  I'm not a gardener but I love to photograph flowers then paint them.  I often change the colors or change the proportions making the images abstract.

One could say I work with both the left and right sides of the brain.  Educated with a math/science background, my career path led me to a more artistic endeavor in the world of marketing for a NY fashion company. I always took art classes in conjunction with my math/science classes because I needed that balance.  I continue to take classes for inspiration and direction.
