after working in psychology for nearly a decade, i felt pulled to explore my more creative side. i have been painting since late 2009, when my husband requested that i try my hand at painting something for his christmas present. being a painter is something i never imagined myself doing, but it brings me great pleasure to take a blank canvas and create something colorful, whimsical, and inviting. this is one way i search for and contribute beauty to a world full of pain and confusion. i paint primarily with acrylic paints and i like to layer on texture with ink, charcoal, and colored pencil.
my husband herb and i live a simple life in a cozy little neighborhood of denver, co with our sweet little girl. when i am not painting, i love to cook homemade, healthy, inventive comfort food. striving to live a life filled with creativity and beauty is what brings me great pleasure in the day to day…
