I am an abstract painter and mixed media artist who enjoys working with a variety of subjects, real, surreal or pure abstraction. I bury images under layers of paint, pastel, charcoal, found objects, cloth, photographs and collaged paper. I frequently use written passages, which may include poetry, quotes or old letters, in support of my message. I play with line, shape, texture and color trying to draw the viewer in to interact with the themes in my spirited compositions.
Reflection on life is what inspires me. I base my themes on the world around me. Whether it is women's issues, the everyday trials and tribulations of humanity, or my travels to awe-inspiring and exotic locations, my work is a reflection of things that are important to me.
I have exhibited in galleries and museums in New York and Florida in both group and one-person shows over the last three decades. I have won many awards and I am in several private collections.
