I grew up in Maryland, just outside of DC, enjoying childhood summers swimming in lakes and at the beach and always exploring outdoors. My elegant, feminine and often abstract artwork is inspired by travels all over the world. I have lived abroad in Spain and traveled much of Europe and the Caribbean, collecting impressions and memories from each place. Currently, I reside in Brooklyn NYC with my family and am the leader of the Tuesdays Together NYC chapter, and serve as the Regional Director of the Northeast for Honeybook.
My paintings are each a memory.
So often, I visit a place and immediately look around and think, “I will paint this moment”. Whether it is a beach scene, beautiful flowers in a tote bag on the subway, or a simple moment walking in nature, I collect memories and turn them into my paintings.
My works reflect an attitude of experimentation and a curiosity regarding the beauty created by the transparency and overlapping of ideas. Inspiration for all of my artwork comes from waterscapes, sunsets, bright colors in nature, and the silhouettes created by extreme light or darkness. I absolutely love working as a painter and am constantly exploring new ideas in my work.
