Blurring the lines between abstraction and realism, I create loosely assembled images with soft edges … imparting a mood, a suggestion, without detail.
I attempt to create a feeling – a mood- through the use of color, light, and subject matter, most commonly found in nature … Nature is my inspiration, teacher and healer and I create in order to wrap myself in the process and in the moment.
With a full time career in the behavioral health field, it wasn’t until 2013 that I returned to my childhood interest in art. My initial exploration was with encaustic painting, but now much of my work is in oil and cold wax. I’m drawn to expressive, abstract landscape painting and the use of color.
Spending a great deal of my time in Seabrook, SC, much of my work is inspired by the Low Country marshes, estuaries, ocean and beaches. My love for nature and landscape is what inspires me and drives me to create.
Over the past few years, I’ve taken many art classes and workshops exploring different mediums, techniques and materials. My studio is in my home in Greenville, SC where I reside with my husband, Erik.
