After exploring other careers, I decided to stop painting my walls wild colors and channel my creative and color passion to works of art that give impressions of both seen and unseen spiritual perspectives. It has been a journey to learn and watch my work evolve during the previous years.
I live an art-filled life as a painter, art educator, and curator.
I am a photographer who paints. Working with encaustic, oil, cold wax, acrylic, and ink allow me to combine my first passion of photography with my found love of painting.
When I just paint, I discover spiritual atmospheres that show up in dreams/visions. When I collage, I am able to explore the combination of my photos and monotypes with found paper and fabric encased in wax or acrylic.
It has always been my dream to swim in color. I love color -- how it creates interactions, reactions and the overall effect color has on its surroundings. I believe that the world is more colorful than the human eye perceives. And when the light is shown on various aspects of our world, we see the color we were intended to experience.
