I am inspired by textures, and layers both built up and washed off
giving the painting a sense of history.
For me the horizon line on a landscape sets the stage for curiosity
and the mystery of what lays beyond that edge. 

My mother was an art major
My sisters and I were surrounded by her creativity from birth..  
She wanted her three daughters to follow a different path though, art was to be a hobby only.

I found a profession that included art as therapy, and became an Occupational Therapist.

Today I value that education, and have found that painting grounds me, and musters up calm and joy like nothing else can.

I feel so blessed to have found a sisterhood whose hearts and souls are joined by laughter, tears, and unconditional love. I believe it was fate that brought us together to be sisters through our art.
