I like to think of each of my pieces of art as “Splattered
Fate”. The action of dripping, brushing, layering, and
splattering; it is the communication to the canvas from
my intuitive thoughts that brings forward the fate of the
piece. My works reflect the spontaneous way in which I
paint giving it a sense of allover painting. Each of my
pieces of art represent in a sense, my thoughts, my
words, my actions, my memories. I feel my pieces are
inspired a little by the many feeling that make me who I
am and where I’ve been. I continually find myself
replaying in my mind the beauty of the mountains, the
gardens, the ocean and life!
Growing up, my family was very musical; however, I am told, my first experience with music was painting on my father’s Gibson pearl-inlaid guitar when I was three. And then as I needed to be more creative, I took his shirt from the laundry to make a
dress for my doll. I have always had a needle, a paintbrush or a weight in my hand, and a foot on the treadle of a sewing machine or on a treadmill in a gym. I believe in dancing and
listening to music everyday. I credit my inspirations in part to having lived in many places in the US and several
foreign countries. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to currently reside with my husband in Santa Fe, NM.
Along with my pieces of acrylic, oil and inks on canvas, I work in painted glassware and beaded jewelry. I have been a member of the Abstract Art Collective, The Santa Barbara Art Association, committee member of the Carpinteria Valley Arts Council and council member for the Westmont College Art Council. I am a current member of the Rio Rancho Art Assoc. show work at 7 Arts Gallery, Santa Fe, NM.
