When I am painting, I am communicating my need to rediscover balance and harmony through color and form. My work evokes the passion I discovered for ancient Asian folding screens during my Mount Holyoke College years as a Comparative Religion Major, intertwined with my reverence for Cape Cod dunes and gardens. What emerges is a landscape of my spirit and an invitation to join me there. For me, painting is a form of meditative practice that calls me back to mindfulness of the natural world and the deep connection I have to it. The medium is acrylic, often with black brush strokes reminiscent of the ink of calligraphy.
Shown in "BellaNess" and "Common Ground" in Connecticut, as well as in private collections in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, Wellfleet, MA, and Wilbraham, MA, my work can also be seen at the Truro Vineyard Wine and Dine Evening August 1, 2018 and at the Artists' Cottages in Orleans, MA.
