About my work:
As a child, I remember sitting outside feeling part of only the ocean and and sky. My painting didn't begin until I was 21, but looking back, I know I was soaking in, what I would later express on paper.
As a psychology student at Stanford 25 years ago, while taking a painting elective from Bay Area artist Frank Lobdell, I was encouraged to discover my love of paint. I had no idea the world I was opening, a world inside me, that I didn't understand. It wanted to come out and express itself; paint was what it needed.

I paint with oil pastels, acrylic, watercolors and mixed media. Oil pastels form a perfect medium for me, I can place layer over layer and I can smudge. These are the two most necessary techniques for my own expression.

Much of my painting deals with light. This is not a decision, as much as an expression. In my work, this often takes the form of night scapes, moons, stars, sunsets, sunrises, butterflies, flowers, birds and cozy homes; light we are reaching for, and often find. I love color, intensity, movement, nature, light, darkness and whimsy. I use thick textures and fuzziness in a style that could only be called intensely impressionistic.

Also, I have always wanted to create- a- line of "Have a Mice Day" cards (see my Have a Mice Day" album. I have always wanted to paint tables for cafes or gardens (see my painted tables). I have always wanted to paint t-shirts for kids (have thousands!), paint beautiful holiday cards for my communication and others, and to write and illustrate children's stories (unpublished). These are my dreams and dreams are definitely part of my work!

I am working towards a website and blog!
