Painter, Nature Lover, Beauty Hunter
Nature is the main muse of my acrylic paintings, which feature bold botanicals and bright color palettes. I practice intuitive painting, and my work explores layers of texture, rhythm and movement as I interpret it in nature. It is my hope that my work will inspire viewers to look more carefully at the world around them, to discover beauty in unexpected places, and to take care of the earth.
I first started painting in the year 2000 while taking a few art classes in college. Then I took a break to pursue a business career and start a family. Since 2018, I'm thrilled to be back in the painting groove again. I have shown in a solo exhibition at gallery840 in Allentown, PA, and have been part of a juried exhibition at the Banana Factory in Bethlehem, PA. My paintings have won awards at regional art festivals in 2018 and 2019.
My striking acrylic paintings are available online as well as at select shows and exhibitions in Southeastern Pennsylvania, where many of my collectors reside. Commissions and interior designer collaborations welcome. Subscribe below to be the first to know about news and events.
