There are some things in life that bring you joy and make your heart sing. For me, it’s my kids, family, flowers and color. I paint colorful and bright joyful paintings. I always wanted to be an artist but I started painting later in life after a successful corporate career. When my boys were 5 or 6 years old I told them that they could be anything they wanted and my son asked ‘What do you want to be when you grow up Mama?’ that’s when I decided not to give up on my dream and I started painting. And I am happy to say I have art as a positive energy after I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. I paint intuitively with upbeat vibes that are reflected in my paintings.
India influences my colors and the beauty of the PNW is my inspiration. The joy of flowers comes from my father, who used to grow beautiful flowers.
My paintings have layers and depth as I feel each painting is an individual and each layer influences what comes next. I usually start multiple paintings at the same time… As I wait for a layer to dry I can move to the next and add little bits to each painting so they are somehow connected but distinct. Acrylic is my main choice of medium along with graphite, charcoal, color pencils. I like working with nontraditional tools that create unusual shapes and marks.
