Contemporary Realist and Abstract Artist

My Studio

My studio is definitely my “Happy Place.”  When I enter and set up my canvas and paints, the creativity starts flowing and I become totally focused on the process of painting.  At that point the only place that exists for me is my studio.  I become so absorbed in painting that hours go by and the rest of the world fades away.  It makes me so happy when viewers enjoy my art because each painting truly expresses a part of me.

Dancing in the Wind

The red poppy represents remembrance, peace and eternal sleep.

It has come to symbolize the blood shed during battle when, in 1915, Canadian poet, soldier and physician Lt.-Col. John McCrae wrote the poem “In Flanders Fields” to memorialize those lost in a battle fought in the Ypres Salient region of Belgium.

I like to think the poppies in “Dancing In The Wind” are a symbol of the souls of those fallen during war rising to Heaven.

Her variety of subject matter, her use of color and of line.  She is an artist who loves art in all forms and her work reflects that love.

All are so beautiful, and such colors!  Amazing variety!  I was going to list my favorites but then realized my list would go on and on….
