Creating art literally flew into my life on the wings of spiritual awakening. This essential experience, occuring on my 38th birthday, involved the sky, the ocean, clouds, mountains and rocks. I believe the inspiration I get from these beautiful elements will keep me busy for the rest of my life.
While I am a painter, I also enjoy working 3-dimensionally with beads applied to and embellished with natural elements. I love rocks, first and foremost, but I also work with wood, coconut shells, bamboo, and other “findings” that wash up on the beach or that I discover when I am out walking my dogs. The beads help satisfy my need for “sparkle.”
Most recently I have been working on larger scale pieces including canvas's up to 4ftx6ft covered in beadwork.
