Artist’s Statement

I paint with acrylics, gel mediums and metallic pigments on canvas. I am drawn to muted tonal palettes—warm hues of blue, soft greens, gauzy yellows and shadowy grays. I love the way a little bit of metallic or iridescent medium can catch the light and illuminate a matte surface. It is exciting to me when a shimmering effect might make visible a sense of the passage of time.

Through my art I am continuously searching for peace ~ exploring themes of spirituality, contemplation, harmony, surrender and stillness. My hope is that my art appeals to the imagination and intuition in a way that might invoke a sense of connectedness to something greater than ourselves. 
I love to travel and have been fortunate to live and raise my family for a few years in Australia and France. After 12 years in the San Francisco Bay Area, we have once again been consumed by wanderlust and have moved to a pretty little village on the outskirts of London, England. I have set up my studio and found representation with a local gallery. Home base is still the Bay Area, and I continue to exhibit with JCO’s Place art gallery in downtown Los Gatos.
