My childhood involved watching my mother draw and paint. I was also very intrigued by my brother’s photography. So . . . from an early age, I loved to create using a pencil, paint, or camera. My first painting on canvas was a joint effort with my twin sister. After high school, I completed a Bachelor Degree in Fine Art.
As an adult, I have combined my passion for travel and art by photographing many spectacular destinations. Greece, Australia, Singapore, Bali, Sweden, the Caribbean, and many U.S. locations appear in my photographs. Many of my paintings are mixed media pieces that include a process of transferring sections of my photographs to the painting surface. The photographic image becomes integrated into layers of paint.
My special area of interests include nature, color, different cultures, and abstract images. These elements are seen in various captivating ways in my artwork.
