Art reminds us of just how fabulous it feels to be alive. The journey of each painting begins with this intention; breathe and relax into presence. I begin to listen and allow space for what wants to be expressed in the moment. Without a plan, I let the painting intuitively unfold.
I work primarily in non-objective compositions, creating a bridge between my inner world and the material world. At any given time, I’m working on many paintings simultaneously. I create an orchestra of paintings around me, a back and forth of listening and response, not just to one painting but to a whole room of paintings.
I grew up in the Hudson Valley, spending my childhood drawing and painting, and exploring in nature. I’ve studied extensively in the movement and visual arts with teachers from all over the world. I live and maintain a year-round studio on the coast of Maine.
