*Some photos of this piece were taken before the shiny resin finish was applied. The finish makes it harder to get a clear photo, so I like to provide a photo of the piece so you see exactly what you are getting.


Since much of my work is abstract expressionism, there isn't always a direct story correlation. What you see on the canvas is what comes welling up out of my heart on that particular day. There are elements of hope, movement, change, water, and always - life and freedom.


I usually start my work with an acrylic wash, which activates the canvas for me. After that dries, I add one or two layers of heavy body acrylic paint and, sometimes, oil pastel. My marks work with the flow of the original wash layer. Finally, I draw illustration lines on the dry paint to bring movement and life to the piece.


Though I am the mother of 5 kids, I find time to paint because I love to communicate visually. I find that painting helps people to understand what I mean better than any number of words could. As I've grown more emotionally healthy over the past year or so, I've learned to express my feelings. The color in my paintings often expresses my mood and emotions. The lines and shapes in my art express the way my mind analyzes things, as well as the constant movement of life & thought.


I hope this piece speaks to you and causes you to feel... much as I have felt as I created it. I hope it brings you peace and joy - whether you are buying or just looking.
