Explore and Create
Welcome! I am an Artist, Facilitator, Consultant, and Creative Coach.
As an art instructor, my mission is to connect you to your highest self through art - to bring out your budding inner artist.
Here you can explore and purchase my original works of art, learn more about my Your Budding Artist workshops, and connect with me. Happy creating!
I am inspired by nature. I love to explore the outdoors and take in its glorious colors, shapes, and textures. I capture them in my photography and express them in my paintings. I have a strong affinity for trees and flowers. They find their way into just about everything I do.
I love to paint in acrylic, oil, watercolor, and encaustic. Regardless of the media, I strive to explore luminosity, color, and especially texture, in every piece I create. I am drawn to organic shapes and the unexpected nature of fluid flowing media. I paint intuitively, setting an intention and allowing the painting to speak to me as it comes into being. I enjoy the unexpected textures that result.
My work leans toward the abstract as I explore capturing the beauty in everyday things. In doing so, I hope that I inspire you to notice and take in the beauty around you each day.
