As an artist and a writer, I blend images and words in my work. I create intuitively, primarily with acrylics and mixed media. I’ve never been afraid of color, which I use boldly to convey feelings. I love the texture of painted surfaces and impressions of brushstrokes and tools. Painting is a tactile experience as well as an emotional response.
I have painted portraits, landscapes, florals and still lifes. Recently I turned to abstracts to express a poetic language for emotions. Often I collage images, words, phrases, or lines from my poems onto the canvas.
I share personal glimpses of life in my blog “Kaleidoscope” on my website.
