Rothko’s ethereal simplicity, Matisse’s color and line, Mitchell’s lyricism, Richter’s depth and rhythm.
And peeling paint.
Sometimes, I attempt to capture things just as they are; more frequently, my works express an appreciation
for the interaction of shapes and my attraction to the unknown and imagined. Regardless of the image, the
overarching goal is singular: I create to seek, express and inspire joy.
Although my formal education is in the fields of psychology (B.A.) and education (M.S.), my life has been
peppered with classroom and private study in art. I owe a great
debt to my mentor, Stephany Cousins, and
cousin, Denise Shaw.
