My paintings convey the feeling of a carefree summer day.
Using many layers of paint and paper I create abstract colorful flowers in a setting of water, sand and sunshine. My mixed media collage pieces incorporate words, gems, buttons, fabric and any other interesting objects to form a multicolor design. I enjoy the adding and subtracting of objects as the piece takes shape. I often see something new as I look through the layers. I finish the work with oil pastels, pencil or charcoal. They are meant to bring beauty to the world and a smile to your face.
I am a self-taught artist that started taking lessons in the summer of 2018. I have begun mentoring and inspiring friends to try painting and creating. I am developing classes and retreats where everyone is welcome enjoy the process of making art.
