"Since coming back to the world of art, I have found more joy in my surroundings and in my life. I favor bright colors, lively shapes and lines, with an attention to the whole space of the canvas. I layer my paintings with color and texture as I play with the paint, color, and composition. Landscapes and flowers provide a fitting subject as they naturally provide the range of colors, shapes and patterns I enjoy most. Everywhere I travel I am looking at my surroundings with a painting in mind. I note color combinations and compositions to bring back to my canvas. I love painting from sketches and from memory to create a flatter abstracted image which brings more of myself into the piece. My paintings are always an expression of me, and how I see my world. I hope you enjoy their whimsical fun and vibrancy!"
