What I Say

I am a visual storyteller. The natural world is my inspiration; watercolor is my vehicle.

Whatever project I am participating in, I approach it to express beauty and truth from my heart.

—-When I meet your animal companion, I look with my heart to find his/her essence to express in the portrait I paint for your remembering.

—-The first step when collaborating with a writer to illustrate a verbal message with an image, is to listen to and see with my heart.

—-In my personal work, I play with collage intuitively, to find animal combinations that resonate with a heart message I want to share.

My heart is the most important tool in my process of creating.

A finished painting has to be shared in order for me to feel the cycle of creating come to completion. I invite you to open your heart to a world of possible stories and bring any of my paintings into your home or office where they will continue to inspire and delight you.

I share my heartfelt images in a few ways: a custom portrait of your animal companion; original paintings; and notecards and prints of selected images.

All original paintings are painted on 300 pound Arches 100% cotton rag paper. I use professional quality watercolor paint.

I have shown my work in California, Colorado, Wyoming, Kentucky, Tennessee and New York, and won awards.

My formal training was completed at Rhode Island School of Design where I began an intimate visual exploration of my relationship to the natural world toward developing a personal mythology.

Home is rural New York where I immerse myself in her healing landscape, always with a four-legged companion.

I have provided links to websites of innovative artists that have inspired me to create, grow and love!
