My paintings have been described as "ethereal", "soft", "magical", and "otherworldly" because I paint in shades of gray and black and white. Birds, fashion, calligraphy, graphic design, album covers, the female form, textiles, embroidery, religious themes and icons have always influenced my work.
Early on, my works clearly followed mannerism style (long necks and hands), art nouveau, and mythology. Later, I looked to comic book artists like Dave Mckean, Alex Ross and David Mack for ideas. Eventually, I looked inside myself and found more interest in theological and spiritual themes.
But over the last couple years I have enjoyed portrait painting the most. Today, translating an image from mundane to magical, is my end goal.
I live in the middle of America, with my talented husband and 2 cats, where I have sloshed paint, pushed pixels and played in clay for over 25 years. I have exhibited in more than 50 locations and painted over 200 paintings.
I do plan to add a store here with a wide variety of available archival, numbered giclee prints available for purchase.
