Why do I paint? Connection.

Connection to a part of myself, connection to those around me.

I believe art is an extension of oneself, an offering, a moment in time.

And, for me, art is a way of finding my way to the essence of who I am

and what my existence means to the world.

My process is a dance between the canvas, paint, and my own energy.

It is very much an intuitive process that is often steeped in emotion.

 

I began painting in late 2010 after a lifetime of writing.

I wasn’t a visual artist as a child; I’ve been a writer as long as I can remember.

But, when I exposed my creative side to painting,

I fell in love with the freedom of it.

It has fed a part of my soul that I didn’t even realize was hungry.

 

Today, the pen & paintbrush share custody and usually fight for attention.

One way or another, the art gets out.

One way or another, I continue to find my way home…

by way of sharing my heart.

I'd love to hear from you!​
