“To struggle through the process and to commit myself to the effort required to create something meaningful is part of the adventure.”
I paint because I must. I get up most mornings with an irrepressible urge to enter my studio and start painting.
Self-discovery is what motivates me today. Having defined myself for most of my life as either a daughter, wife or mother, I know that there is so much of me, as me, to unearth. Self-discovery happens when I paint.
My challenge is to trust my instincts and surrender to the flow. To struggle through the process and to commit myself to the effort required to create something meaningful is part of the adventure. Acrylic is my main medium because I prefer to work spontaneously and with some speed in order to capture what I am trying to express at the moment. To keep my paintings simple, to express my message through the interplay of color, texture and the surprise of unplanned subtleties is my goal. Although my painting experience is highly personal, I find satisfaction when my work moves people in ways that are personal also or only to them.
