My paintings hover somewhere between reality and fantasy.
Still life remains my favorite, though not only, genre. My love of textiles, and training as a textile designer, is often apparent, especially in my use of block printed repeat patterns throughout my paintings as a means of creating texture and warmth and depth of color.
There is so much in our contemporary world to make us feel terrible, and yet there is so much beauty, as well. I want my paintings to make me and all viewers feel some joy.
