Painting is my way of dreaming out loud. Since childhood, creating art has been my passion. I am a former graphic artist who loves to create fantastical escapes with paint. I love to play with color, and different mediums, working mostly in acrylics, alcohol inks, and watercolors, and occasionally digitally with my photographs. I have a fascination with dreams, trees, nature, astronomy, and science fiction, and those subjects are my main influences. My sons tell me that my paintings have a happy vibe, which is exactly what my aim is when I create them. :) I find joy in colour, and in exploring through painting...sometimes abstractly, sometimes whimsical, but always with a sense of optimism.
