I’ve been an artist / designer / visual communicator in some capacity all my life. I hold a BFA in Fine Art + Graphic Design and MFA in Visual Communications.
From 1996-2006, I was a ‘MADwoMAN’ working as an art director in a few advertising agencies, until I finally decided to fly from the corporate cookoo’s nest and began freelancing and creating from my home studio. Ever since, my life has been divinely blissful + creatively satisfying.
I’d like to think that my happiness and sense of peace is evident in my work. Within every painting there is a silent prayer.
My original, resonant abstract paintings are intended to stir the soul and are unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.
I focus on elements of color, texture and light by using a good deal of metallic acrylic paint with a heavy impasto technique which creates light-capturing+reflecting effects and a muti-dimensional experience. I paint what I feel and I paint what I feel is missing in the world.
