ARTIST'S STATEMENT
Each of my acrylic paintings are an experiment and a new discovery. My goal is to bring a smile to the viewer and be viewed as calming or playful or just fun to explore. From my studio’s North facing wall of windows, I oversee a large lake surrounded by greenery. Birds, fish, trees and the vast variety of other living things are my painting inspiration.
Color and patterns communicate to us. Our bodies have both mental and visceral reactions from the paint choices and their interactions with each other. After my color palette is chosen, serendipity rules. Starting with a coat of acrylic paint which may be thinned to watercolor consistency or thickened so a palette knife is needed to apply the paint, I build layer upon layer of paint until balance and multiple areas of interest are achieved. I continue to add elements to emphasize whatever image or images that arise to me. As I paint abstractly, I try to convey my enthusiasm and energy for all the possibilities of life, but the overall interpretation of my thoughts and ideas is left to the view.
My paintings represent the awe that I feel for the gift of awareness of the privilege to be an alive, thinking and creative individual. If my paintings arrest your eye and cause you to smile or ponder its meaning, then my goal for my acrylic abstracts will have been filled.
My paintings can be seen at the new Artists of Palm Beach County gallery, “Art on Park” as well as the Century Village main clubhouse where I curate a rotating exhibit of resident artists. From 2008-2113 two paintings were leased by Scripps Research in Jupiter, Florida. I have exhibited in galleries from California to Palm Beach. My paintings are displayed in private collections from coast to coast.

My Biographical Information

I was born in Chicago, Illinois. I taught first and fourth grade in the Chicago Public Schools and Headstart in the summers. When my children were small, I taught a home-based nursery school. After moving to Florida, I became a national and Florida certified paralegal that specialized in research, picking juries and other trial work. My art education began in Illinois and continued at the Norton Museum, the Armory Art Center, Palm Beach State College, and workshops across the country. Memberships and attendance at museums worldwide encourage and stimulate my creative energy.
