I have been painting and drawing since I was a child. I stopped painting when I was offered a job in art restoration, after a few years the company relocated to California and I went to work for my dad's company. After I married and gave birth to my daughter I began to paint again. My family comes first, but each year I am more productive as my daughter gets older and becomes more independent.
I paint people and places that have left impressions on my soul. The subjects I choose are figurative and wildlife because I connect emotionally with family and nature. I challenge myself by selecting a limited color palette.
I enjoy manipulating the colors until they are harmonious and evoke a sense of nostalgia, so the viewer may feel that they are looking at a memory.
Please contact me with requests for information regarding my work. I am available for commission portraits and exhibitions.
