  • Why I’m NOT Planting a Garden

    May 11, 2020 by

    My Facebook and Instagram feed are filled with friends and influencers showing off their newly acquired gardening and cooking skills. I get it. We’re all home with lots of time on our hands.

  • Creativity Redefined

    March 30, 2020 by

    Life has been strange. Encouraged to stay home to protect myself from the pandemic, you would think that I would finally have the time to paint and create new pieces. But I haven’t. I can’t. The thought of setting up the watercolors, taping off the paper — it just all seems too much. It’s not… Read more

With even the brightest colors, this piece evokes a sense of happiness and joy – without the hyperactivity of… Read more

  • Purple Butterfly

    October 1, 2019 by

    Created with only 1 color of paint, this piece explores the magic of wet-on-wet technique and the power of water. By flooding the paper, and dropping in the paint, the pigment separated and spread to create a wonderful effect. Purple evokes transformation, spirituality, enlightenment and wisdom.
