As a painter I love color and I work very intuitively. I always find myself leaning more toward abstraction in my work and I use a lot of imagination. I am never sure what the finished painting will look like when I begin on the blank canvas. I use oil, encaustic and acrylic paints and other mixed media like collage. When I am painting I feel like I am somehow fulfilling my life’s purpose . This keeps me motivated to continue making more art regardless of the outcome. Making art is one of my greatest joys.
I also love jewelry and I have been working with precious metals and stones for over 30 years. My jewelry is often made with the idea of it becoming a cherished heirloom piece that will last for many years, both making a fashionable statement and yet never going out of style. I incorporate metaphor and meaning in my jewelry using timeless symbols and classic forms. My pieces are made to feel good on the body, flatter the wearer and bring joy to the person who is wearing it.
