Paintings: Since 1991, I have focused my creative energy on luminous, vibrant silk paintings. After 26 years and 1,700 paintings, I decided to completely change mediums. In 2015 I expanded to oil painting and am now predominately applying my energy to this very challenging medium. Oil painting is entirely different than silk painting and the change has been a challenging growth opportunity, invigorating me on all levels. Oils open up the opportunity for an outpouring of detail and personality, something I have missed in the silk painting arena. My current body of paintings features enduring creatures, curious, vulnerable beings that want to be loved and admired by everyone.
Jewelry: Creating jewelry with natural, valuable, and unusual gemstones has been a passion for many years. I love to “paint” the empty canvas of a woman’s decollete.
