I have drawn from my early creative endeavors as a professional belly dancer and circus performer to recreate a sense of whimsy and wonder in my work. One thing I learned over the years is that we all crave the same emotional experiences that can be conveyed through the arts. The sense of abandonment of a half sunken boat or the awe of an improbably colored sunrise are examples of that emotional connection. I am fascinated with portals, paths, and water as a means to carry a viewer away from the mundane world into someplace beautiful and sometimes mystical. I am a big fan of adventures and paintings are a way to take others with me.
Recently, I have found a happy marriage between my left brained chemist side and my always-on creative right brain. Acrylic paint pouring is modern-day alchemy! I am so excited to continue to explore ways to create something beautiful out of specific gravities and the repelling qualities of oil and water.
