Pictures tell stories that words can't.‚Äč My paintings tell stories that I can't. No matter what I set out to paint, something magical happens when I go foraging in my right brain.  I have been creating art since I can remember, and it doesn't matter which medium I am handed -- something original seems to result.



My 20+ year careet as a graphic designer influences my artwork, as does the creativity I honed raising six kids. Painting feels like traveling to me.  I set off for one destination, yet sometimes find myself waylaid somewhere else...which turns out to be exactly where I was meant to go.
