Artist's Statement ~
My work presents Contemporary Impressionist and Color Field styles, emphasizing rhythmic and unified organic line and form to build natural subject matter that is commonly static, locked, and contrasting within the geometric "window" of the canvas. I paint with a predominantly analogous paint palette, often including metallic media, while working to create a balanced composition with an interplay of texture and light.
Through my work, I share my experience of nature and universal themes of the spirit. A view of water is a common theme in my work. Our Florida Panhandle beaches and coastal dune lakes are places of reflection, contemplation, peaceful solitude and great beauty. Wonderful vistas seen during walks, abstract ideas from daily life, the beautiful organic lines of nature, passages read from books and journals, and the human form all compel me to create art.
Artist’s Background ~
A native of Mississippi, I am an artist who lives at idyllic Lake Powell, near scenic Hwy. 30-A in the Florida Panhandle. Having developed a deep love of the area throughout my lifetime, my spouse and I decided to make Florida our home in 2009. Holding separate degrees in art and interior design, my career path returned me to the creation of works of art in 2016, full-time, following a well-rounded creative career path of professional dance, visual merchandising, furniture design, art gallery ownership, retail store ownership, and a professional interior design practice of 20 years. I am grateful for all of my many blessings and experiences but I must say that I am happiest in my painting studio.
