Biography

Forms and colors have always captured my attention. Whether drawing or painting, my goal is to capture the spirit of the subject, be it a lone artichoke, a squashed water bottle, a peacefully sleeping child, or an endless chore required by daily life. I strive to re-create the emotions and sensations I felt at a certain moment in time on paper or canvas.

With my most recent Domesticity series, I hope to convey snippets of life as I experience them. It seems I have spent too many years in the realm of relentless and endless daily domestic responsibilities- those requisite yet unpleasant chores of life. As much as I wished they would disappear, I found them inescapable, so I did the next best thing and began painting them. All pieces are watercolor on cold-press paper.

The Produce series began a few years ago when the inherent beauty in a bunch of yellow onions spurred my inspiration to paint them. From there, the colors, shapes and life force within the bounty of fruits and vegetables began captivating and inspiring me to paint them as I saw them. All paintings in this series are acrylic paint on canvas.
Whether painting with acrylic, with watercolor, or simply drawing with pencil on paper, my goal as an artist is to convey life as I experience it.
