Burning In My Heart

“Burning In My Heart” Acrylic and Mixed Media on Canvas, 18″ x 18″


I believe that art can be a vehicle for transformation and healing. When someone views my art for the first time and they tell me they feel something when they look at it — that it evokes emotion — well then, that is the best compliment that I could ever receive.


Soft Haven

“Soft Haven” Acrylic and Mixed Media on Canvas, 24″ x 30″


At its core, my work is about the healing power of beauty. My intent is to create beauty that connects with the viewer emotionally. When a piece of art moves the viewer, it can transform hearts and minds.


Remind Me Who I Am

“Remind Me Who I Am” Acrylic and Mixed Media on Canvas, 24” x 24”


The inspiration for my work comes from the beauty of nature and music. In my experience, both have transformative qualities.


Suddenly Unbound

“Suddenly Unbound” Acrylic and Mixed Media on Canvas, 24″ x 24″


You can see their influence in the movement, palettes, and compositions of my work. Using my innate sense of color and design, I create paintings that have been called jewels full of life, light, and dancing color.


Whispers On The Wind #1

“Whispers On The Wind #1″ Acrylic and Mixed Media on Canvas, 11″ x 15”


I work in abstract because I feel that it allows all pretenses to fall away. There is nothing standing in the way of connecting on a deep level with the work. I want my work to resonate, to touch a person’s heart in a way that fills them with great emotion.


Whispers On The Wind #2

“Whispers On The Wind #2″ Acrylic and Mixed Media on Canvas, 11″ x 15”


Bringing joy and inspiration through my work is my purpose in life and I feel blessed to have been given this gift to share with the world.


War Of The Roses

“War Of The Roses” Acrylic and Mixed Media on Canvas, 20″ x 20″


My art is in numerous private and public collections worldwide, including the United States, Canada, Australia, UK, and Singapore.



“Emergence” Acrylic and Mixed Media on Canvas, 18″ x 24″


Recently, I have begun working with interior designers and design centers. Now I am seeking national gallery representation for my work.
