“Blossom” Acrylic, 36” x 36”

 

I like to transfer positive emotions and uplifting vibrations through my paintings. Leaving my viewers feeling energized and in a joyous state is my main intention when I begin a painting, so I choose a color palette that appeals to the soul. I paint gemstone and nature-inspired pieces using patterns and textures that are engaging and pleasing to the eye.

“Porcelain Roses” Acrylic, 36” x 36”

 

Painting roses and other flowers on a large scale really allows me to zone in on the beauty of each petal. Flowers provide so much joy and comfort, but we do not often take the time to really study the intricate patterns and textures each flower embodies.

I attempt to paint them using a perspective that invites the viewer to climb into the flower and get lost in its many layers.

I also enjoy incorporating hummingbirds, peacocks and other birds in my paintings. Their feathers offer such a beautiful array of hues, sheens and textures that are screaming to be celebrated.

Once in a while, I paint a goddess! What better way to illustrate positivity than that? These paintings allow me to incorporate my love for nature, flowers, textures and patterns all in one.

Lastly, I have created an abstract series titled my “Jewel Collection” which is inspired by the striations, colors and textures found in gemstones and crystals. I grew up in a family of jewelers. Because I had such a fascination with gems, I decided to earn my certification as gemologist through GIA. Creating jewel paintings gives me the opportunity to combine my love for gems and painting.

Painting professionally has always been my life dream. I feel alive and at peace when I’m creating.

Although I started following this path later in life, I use my previous work experience in social work, jewelry, and hospitality to help guide me in my journey as a professional artist.

Since I am self-taught, I am always experimenting with new mediums and trying different techniques. I find inspiration everywhere—from the obvious (flowers, birds and gemstones) to the not so obvious (fashion, music and textiles).
