"I think challenge, inspiration and light coincides with almost every art work I create. Since I started my canvas art while living in Charleston, SC, I often use a color palette of sunrises, sunsets and soothing coastal waters.
As a finisher artist I love to feel the paint and the colors during the process to create. I work with several different mediums, metallic pastes, plasters, paints, minerals, acrylic, oil, and with every piece I use gold, silver or copper metal leaf, which gives a natural element of light, and edge."

I am thankful to be one of the working artists at the Sternberger Artist Center with other artisans, writers and creators. Until a few months ago, I had a small space to work in, with wonderful natural light. and have created many pieces since working in this space since Feb. 2018, and it was always a mess, as I had to step over paintings to get to my work area.
In October 2019 I moved into a larger Studio Space and now I have all kinds of room to create in! The funny thing is, it also allows me to make a bigger messes while I surge on with different projects and paintings.
It is an honor to be creating and doing what I so enjoy at Sternberger. The singing birds and lovely grounds are so welcoming as each day I enter the studio with adventure and a thankful heart to do what I love!
