Artist Statement

Creating art is an intuitive process where I let go of control and surrender to the painting. As a recovering perfectionist, I have chosen to work in mixed media using collage and acrylic because it’s forgiving.  I love creating several layers of texture using paper, mediums, found objects and paint.  Then I carve into the layers to reveal the rich history beneath. Bold colors, geometric shapes and text dance whimsically on the canvas to create value and visual interest. I am happiest when I am drawing outside the lines on the canvas and in life.

Artist Bio

I have always been an artist and have applied those creative skills to building businesses, professional cooking, entertaining, interior decorating, dancing, writing, gardening and to painting.  I am self taught.  When I am not in the studio painting.  I consult for my former business, Parties That Cook which inspires connection through group cooking. I also am an avid gardener and my garden, home and art are currently featured on Houzz and Houzz TV.
