A little about me—I’m a mostly self-taught abstract artist and live with my husband on a lake just north of Richmond, Virginia. Color is my one true love. I get excited about beautiful color harmonies. Inspiration can from anywhere—nature, magazines, design blogs. I have a passion for design, having once been an interior decorator.
But the painting itself is my true inspiration. Because my process is intuitive and experimental, I let the painting tell me what it needs. I make a mark and respond to it until it becomes something I love. I’m going for a fresh, spontaneous feel with pretty, modern colors.
To get loose, I play music. Dance around. Paint on the floor. Paint with my non-dominant hand. Close my eyes. Anything to let go of control and expectations.
The results are often exciting and always unexpected—something no one has seen before! That’s what I love about abstract art. I hope you enjoy my work.
"don't ask what the world needs. ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. because what the world needs is people who have come alive." - Howard Thurman, Philosopher
