About Me

"ART is my sanctuary, my quiet place where life's calling becomes clear."


 I have been working in acrylic and encaustic since 2007. After retiring from a thirty-year career in primary education, I have returned to my passion for creating art . I was privileged to study under the great Lila Lewis Irving, a student of Helen Frankenthahler. The New York School has had a great influence on my own style of nonrepresentational art.

ARTIST STATEMENT

My work is an outward expression of my journey of faith. It encompasses a celebration of life and the abundance of joy and blessings that have influenced my path. Some of my most important work has come from lifes challenges and adversity. Embracing it all has given me the creative energy to paint and to tell my truth. 

 The process of constructing and deconstructing, the scaping back of layers  exposing traces of what lies beneath gives my work depth. It is a metaphor for a life well lived. I hope that those who view my paintings will  be able to identify with them on an emotional level. That would make me happy.

MY INSPIRATION

I am inspired by the love of family and the joy of living the life I have been given. Every day is a precious gift. I am awed by the beauty I see in nature, from the early morning sunrise to the stillness and quiet of the evening.

 It is my grateful heart that you see manifested in my work.
