We as artists believe content is paramount and that balance and harmony are essential.
DESIGN
I am an artist who designs visual metaphors that entice and speak to my viewers.
ENGAGE
I use line and mark and brush strokes like social media and mobile
technology to engage my audiences. Tweet me yellow please. Like me green.

Angels at play
When I was a little girl my mother told me that God lets angels paint the sky and decorate the forests. Imagine what a fun job that would be.  Now the clouds and tropical forests and of course angels inspire me to paint and play and let colors dance together. This painting was created on a day when my paints flew onto the paper and mingled together playfully.  Abstract expressionist paintings open up the viewers world to new imaginings.

Memories. Dancing
Like succulent fruit savored, memories are cherished. Memory is our past and future. "Our memory is our coherence," wrote the surrealist Spanish-born film-maker, Luis Buñuel, "our reason, our feeling, even our action." Lose your memory and you lose a basic connection with who you are. paintings have a way of sparking our memory. They remind us of a place, time or moment.
It's no surprise, then, that there is a fascination with this quintessentially human ability. When I cast back to an event from my past – let's say the first time I ever swam backstroke unaided in the sea – I don't just conjure up dates and times and places (what psychologists call "semantic memory"). I do much more than that. I am somehow able to reconstruct the moment in some of its sensory detail, and relive it, as it were, from the inside. I am back there, amid the sights and sounds and seaside smells. I am wet, looking Up and feeling the sky, the sea. I become a time traveller who can return to the present as soon as the demands of "now" intervene. This Painting is a memory of the way colors dance upon the water.

Building a painting is like creating a building or an architectural structure. It starts from the idea, plan, foundation, inside, and works out. Developing a relationship with a painting, like a friendship, starts from the outside and works in. In creating this painting I started with water. I wanted to capture every part of the process of seeing and touching water so that when my final composition was done it included every trace and erasure made while creating an unreadable language. I wanted the painting to become free and to live beyond the starting point. It is like when you slip into the water and hear her voice whispering wet words in your ears: slush, drip, splash, glisten, glide, float. What water words come to your mind? Perhaps in viewing this painting you will be reminded of the beauty of water in some way.
