Art is my safe place. My art is a tangible rendition of what I feel, as life happens. It lets me enjoy and cherish moments that are colorful, soulful and infinitely peaceful.  As an artist I work hard to create work that carries a cohesive signature that is an unhindered extension of me. An abstract expression of a moment, a personal story, an awe-struck moment provoked by a person, an emotion or the grandeur of nature. I  rely on acrylics, oils, pastels and inks. They allow me an opportunity to create texture, depth and movement, using light and strokes to invoke peace, calm and more importantly offering you a perspective that is unique to just you. I hope you enjoy both bodies of of my work, it is always a joy to share it with others.

Few weeks ago in July a group of lovely ladies reached out to me to commission a piece specifically to surprise their beloved friend for her 40th!! I thought this was the sweetest thing ever and I get to be a part of it. What an honor and how unbelievably exciting. Then it gets even better when these friends and I continue those creative conversations and I finally find out that this special birthday friend about to be surprised with my work is someone I also know and adore!! I am beyond happy.

my heart is full oil, pastel & ink on canvas 36"x48" A few months ago, a group of adoring friends approached me to create this custom piece for their friend. A surprise. Creating art always feels like a gift, but to create something special and capture the intent and emotions behind it and have it received with so much love leaves me beyond humble and grateful.
