I enjoy painting with acrylics, a versatile medium that can be transparent or thickly textured, matte or iridescent, finely detailed or abstract. My subjects and styles are diverse, including landscapes, flowers, birds, historical sites and wildlife. My love of travel shows in my work, which is influenced by the people, lands and arts of Thailand, Indonesia, Brazil, Turkey, Italy, India and California. I use antique wood and fine copper print blocks (tjaps) to create unique backgrounds and borders in my work.
In addition to acrylics, I experiment with mixed medium using dried flowers and paper upcycled from shopping bags, music books and maps. When we had to shelter in place in 2020, I began making small original paintings of birds, animals and landscapes. Ranging from 4 x 4” to 12 x 12” these free standing pieces can sit on a desk, counter or nightstand and encourage dreams of better times to come.
