Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.
– Pablo Picasso
I call my offerings "Nature Art" because along with the obvious, I am thinking about the nature of beings as I work -- what makes them tick, and what makes them THRIVE.
This meditative and soulful art is created to slow down time a little in order to calm, energize, and balance the spirit.
I like to take time to slow down and focus on thoughts that relax and heal. <3
I enjoyed drawing as a young child and was encouraged to expand my artwork. I attended the Rochester Institute of Technology and earned a BA with honors along with the Class Portfolio Award in Medical Illustration.
My artwork is a combination of graphite, colored pencil, watercolor, and now oil. Currently I am working in oil and enjoy learning something new every time I paint. My aim is to inspire the viewer to shift or maintain thought patterns that support healing, balance, and emotional/spiritual growth. I translated learning to paint a classic landscape into painting a dreamscape.
I use an intuitive and holistic approach – searching for grace and hope even in situations where emotions are at their darkest. Thoughts, dreams and feelings are very powerful in our overall chemistry and a healthy approach to them is just as important as routine clinical physical maintenance.
