I was born and raised in the Cincinnati, OH Tri-state area. In high school I was introduced to commercial art through a vocational - technical program, but knew at a young age art was my calling. Working for small advertising agencies in Northern Kentucky and New Jersey for more than 15 years, I relocated to the West Coast in 1998 and raised a family. I have two sons, aged 24 and 19. ( I have discovered that even tho they are older.....it's not much easier!) Several years ago I was led back to what I have always held dear in my heart, and so I have pursued the creative life. My mission is to create art that inspires and uplifts people in their sacred space.
Flowers are my muse. I have always loved flowers, everything about flowers. When I plant them, I wear no gloves. I want to feel the soil as I prepare the space that will ultimately nurture beautiful blooms. It connects me with the focus of my art. Have you ever felt that? If not with soil and flora, then perhaps with some other tactile creation. I bet you have!
Flowers have a general, basic design that repeats in thousands of forms. And yet, each one it its own miracle of intricate shape, texture and fragrance. A single flower can compel us to JOY! And when one flower combines with some others - of the same species or not - in a single spot, the result can mesmerize an unsuspecting viewer. I seek that power when I paint.
In addition to fine art prints and original works, I also offer custom, commissioned artwork! You can learn more about that process on this pageHERE
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
I find my inspiration in nature, and specifically..... flowers are my muse. A single flower can compel us to JOY. This is what I seek when I paint.
A great deal of my work is created using my fingers, bubble wrap, fork, shelf liner and other discarded items in the home or natural objects from the outdoors.
A two-woman show in Ventura, CA, a solo show at Gardens of the World in Thousand Oaks, CA and a two-week artist residency in France are a few of my most joyful experiences!
