My art is a reflection of my daily life, to that of which I am inspired and of universal spiritual themes. The images that I draw and paint, are guided by the connections found through the peaceful quietness of meditation and of allowing these images to come through with little or no preconceived direction. The art process in which I use to create my paintings usually begins with pen and ink black lines. Drawing in this way, could be likened to automatic drawing- channeling images from Universal Consciousness. Painting involves the same technique, colors flow without direct thought or planning. It's intuitive.
The natural world, animals, children, magic and synchronicity guide my creative process leading to art that is meant to be uplifting and to give feelings of magical surprise, healing, and joy with an ultimate goal to offer affirmations of the links that connect us together as a whole. The paintings tell stories and you are the interpreter. Whether it be dog art, spiritual art, animal art, or any other art that I create, I hope that it brings a smile, and a lightness of feeling so much needed in times like today.
My education includes a BFA in Art Education and an MFA in Ceramics. A few of my favorite things to do include playing the piano, walking my dog, spending time with my family and friends, astrology, meditation, and of course, creating art which has helped me on so many levels through life as a means of personal expression. I enjoy working with clay and my home studio is in the making. I was a Ceramics Art teacher for 25 years.
I am a two time survivor of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. Most recently going through treatment in 2021-2022. This journey has given me an internal strength that of which has given me the courage to allow time and space to be who I am, spend time with the people who are dear to me and pursue goals that are closest to my heart.
