On the Canvas and Behind the Camera

 

I am passionate.
I am spirited.

 

I see the world around me through rose colored glasses (because without them, frankly, I can’t see AT ALL.)

I create art with color, heart, and dance. Sometimes it may involve wine.

During my workday, a break might include walking, cycling, baking, gardening, or playtime with my elementary students.

Every flower is its own story.  Every stage, every season…from bud to seed is a celebratory moment.  My botanical photography zooms in on intimate details…each line, each contour, each shadowed hue.  Flowers are nature’s poster child for living in the moment.

I work with acrylics because I do not have the patience to work with oils. Weeks to dry? Really?!  In my studio that is a recipe for a super textured mixed media work, or in other words, sharing DNA with our pet menagerie.

PAINTINGS:

Each painting is an original, authentic piece of art created
and signed by me.

  • Only professional grade acrylic paints and canvases
    are used.
  • Each painting is finished with a coat of satin varnish to
    protect from dust and UV light.
  • Paintings are professionally packaged when
    shipped.

 

FINE ART PRINTS:

Each print purchased from this website is made from an original image created by me
and printed on professional grade Epson paper through my partnership with a local professional photography lab.

  • Only the highest quality archival inks are used.
  • Gallery wrap canvas prints are printed on archival inkjet canvas and laminated with a satin finish.  The canvas is hand wrapped around a 1.5″ wooden frame with a wire hanger.  All gallery wraps arrive ready to display.
