My paintings are about light, color and rhythm! I paint with a full color spectrum that allows me to express the amazing and dynamic beauty of nature—my greatest source of inspiration. I view painting like creating a musical composition – with strong, bright notes in some passages and contrasting areas of more quiet repose. It is up to me as the artist to interpret this ‘song’. I work in a loose impressionistic style with thick applications of paint using a brush or palette knife. My work explores the contrasts of: darkness & light, cool & warm, smoothness & texture, calmness & movement, realism & abstraction.
I am a third-generation artist— my mother was an artist and sculptor and my grandmother was an impressionist landscape painter. While spending 5 years in Paris in the 1990’s, I studied both Studio Arts and Art History, and I was greatly influenced by the French Impressionists and Post-Impressionists. I am currently living in beautiful South Carolina where every day is a new art inspiration!
I am an artist/co-owner of Art on the Square Gallery in the Nexton Development in Summerville, South Carolina. You can view my art there along with the art of other amazing local artists.
