I am a transplant from the Midwest, but have lived in Nashville over 40 years. I work full time as an account coordinator for a pre-press graphics shop. Painting is my weekend passion.I studied fashion illustration, but am mainly a self taught artist. After attending an abstract acrylic workshop, I fell in love with textures. My canvases are now enhanced with fabric, tissue paper and gold leaf providing the perfect backdrop for bright acrylic works. A high gloss epoxy resin is the final touch to make the color and textures pop, creating a shimmering canvas. I am inspired by subjects drenched in sunlight. The sharp contrasts of shadows and light are irresistible. My subjects vary from orchids, Japanese tea garden scenes to porches in Cuba.
