I develop a sense of oneness with my subject that comes from being still, listening and observing. The work takes on a life of its own. It reflects my emotions, my observations and my experiences as an artist. I feel that we are losing touch with nature and maybe, through my paintings, someone might begin to see how important it is to preserve this beautiful place we inhabit.

This  Washington  D.C.  native  and  former  illustrator takes  her  inspiration  from  nature.  Her  visual  themes, rendered  in  acrylic,  are  metaphors  for  life  as  she sees  it.  

A  recurring  motif  in  her  works,  leaves floating  on water  symbolize  the  process  of  living and dying, decay  and  rebirth  –  the  still  water  reflecting sky  and trees,  the  leaves  fading  as  they  submerge, eventually slipping  to  the  floor  of  the  pond,  recycling into sustenance  for  future  generations  of  living creatures.
