I am an artist, photographer, and a jewelry maker. I love to be creative in any way that I can; I’m always trying to grow as an artist and as a person. I was born and raised in Western New York, and I’ve lived in Georgia since 2001. I am from a family of artists on both my parents’ sides. They are also musicians, painters and photographers, who have all inspired me since I was a young girl.
My artistic style is abstract, free-flow and intuitive painting.
I use heavy-body acrylics, molding paste, ceramic stucco, and pumice, as well as glitter on occasion. I paint what I feel–in the moment–what I feel in my heart, or what I see in a vision through someone who inspires me or by listening to music.
I have a series of paintings called “Hidden,” where I hide a person’s name in my painting during the time that they inspired me. These are my best sellers so far and some of my favorites.
My paintings and fine art photography have been displayed in a Physician’s office in Macon and my paintings were displayed at Deep South Deli and Pub on the McDonough Square.
Art is so therapeutic. It helped me to heal after the sudden loss of my Dad in 2004. There’s something so beautiful that can come out of a broken-hearted person who has had such a life altering loss. When you begin to start healing, learning that life goes on and choose to start searching for the beauty in the world, everything changes, everything looks and feels so different, more alive and more colorful than ever, and everything starts to connect.
