Though my education and career were in mental health, my life has been about art. I began in childhood by drawing on anything and everything, though I was much too shy to take a class. As an adult I became skilled at stained glass, fine silver jewelry making, and champlevé enameling. Finally, by the strange twists and turns of life, I began the study of watercolors. From that moment I knew I had found my creative home.
What has always drawn me to art is that it calls me to be fully present to the exquisite and ever-changing world around me. It reminds me to breathe it in and feel it. These are the feelings that I try to bring to my work. My paintings, though always falling short of the moments that inspired them, are my song of gratitude, wonder and love.
