Announcement   About Me
I am a professional artist living and working in beautiful Monterey California. My studio is in the sunlit front of my victorian home that I painstakingly renovated and brought back from the dead when my husband and I bought it in shambles. Here we have created an urban farm of raised vegetable beds and blooming fruit trees, populated by very spoiled, chickens, and our three happy kids just a few blocks from the crashing surf, and the seals.

Bio
My mental association with something: a place, the angle of the sun in a memory, stories when there is nothing else left of their subjects, is my departure point when creating my work. I learn much about my association with the context during the process and I get a sense of resolution in this. I receive immense gratification knowing that I have animated what is lifeless into a boisterous celebration of energy and life or a hauntingly elegant study in subtlety. Dimensionally rich in layers and textures, and held together by articulate color plays, I create pieces that beg intimate investigation, and reward again and again upon repeated visitations. My work has been published in a book featuring international artists. I hold a BA in fine arts, am internationally collected, as well as in many many private collections in the United States.

This painting is absolutely breathtaking. It is so substantial and STRIKING in person. I had the privilege of getting the background story & inspiration for this piece from Sarah and seeing it through the artists eyes gives it so much more depth to me. I am in complete awe of this painting and LOVE it. I will treasure it always. Thank you so so very much.
