Artist’s Statement

.

As an artist, I strive to evoke emotions through my subject matter,

some of which can be quite dark and bizarre, and  I defy all rules that dictate

how and what I should create by society.  To me, every stroke and

choice of color come from within and have been sparked by emotion, which is what art

is all about to me – emotion – that of the artist and the spectator.

My Bio

.

In 1973 I married a wonderful military man and left the

effervescence of New York to accompany him to Europe.  There I

began my 21-year career as a dedicated military spouse in the U.S.

Air Force.  Concurrently, I launched my college adjuncting career

with City Colleges of Chicago at Zaragoza Air Force Base in Spain.

.

In 1992 I opened an antiques and collectibles business before

transitioning into real estate in 2006.

.

In 2012 I moved to Asheville, NC and discovered the exciting field

of hospitality for which to work.   

.

In 2017 it was time to move to Florida and help out with family matters. 

.

And here we are in 2021 – the second year of COVID.   

Furloughed from both jobs (hospitality and education) since March 2020,

I am spending more time in my studio than I have in many years

creating works that reflect the emotions of the times 

– chaos, division, hatred, and fear.
