A little info about me & my art:
As an art history major who has spent most of my life in the performing arts world, I have been privileged to travel world cultures through their great works of art, and colors and themes from those experiences often surface in my own work. I return time and again to visions of landscapes, the rhythms of jazz, creatures of the sea, and flowers. I enjoy working on a small scale, influenced by an early fascination with miniatures and dollmaking. I draw constantly; I am known for my doodling with ballpoint pen on lined paper margins. Beadwork has been a passion for over 25 years and folk art is a frequent source of inspiration, especially quilts and stained glass. Hence, my work follows a design aesthetic of piecing and placing shapes and colors like puzzle pieces in constructed environments.
