“I paint what I see. The joy is in the seeing and I try to capture that in my paintings.”
I am more interested in light and what it does for my subject than in the subject itself. I find flowers fascinating for their color and transparency and cacti and succulents for not only what happens to the color but also the wonderful shadows produced by their shapes.
I paint in many thin colored layers. This creates a beautiful depth of color and also the soft edges for which I am known .
My background is as an interior designer. I designed my building which houses my studio, gallery, home and a top floor rental. I also design and produce custom furniture for the gallery.
My early professional life included working in magazines and advertising where I worked with some great photographers and learned to translate three dimensions into a two dimensional composition
I started painting later in life studying Impressionism at the prestigious Art Students League in New York City.
