“My goal in painting abstracts is to create dynamic color studies with movement and energy, invoking an urban vibe. In my traditional oils, I am especially drawn to the vivid purples of lavender fields in Provence, the yellows of Tuscan sunflower fields, the pastels of the sea, and the many hues of flowers. In these works I attempt to create a soothing mood through the use of color. In my paintings of youth sports I strive to capture action, drama, and touching interaction between players and coaches. In my jewelry line I have translated my love of the seashore and years of “treasure hunting” on beaches all over the world into a line of unique, one-of-a-kind pieces using natural materials.”
