In my painting series “Peaceful Reflections” I draw inspiration from the element of water and its organic depth of color.  Color and light transcend into layers of reflections, contemplating life and our desire for tranquility. We need to preserve our natural environments to create a more peaceful world.

The paintings are oil, acrylic, and ink on canvas. I paint both the figure and landscapes that are abstract and figurative. Both series focus on the depth of color, the organic movement of our surroundings, letting our minds search for peace, love, and beauty.

My paintings of the female body and portraits are a discovery of a women’s strength vs. vulnerability. For me painting is about the beauty, movement, and discovering the inner soul of a person. In this work I combine watercolor and ink on paper.  I also create large scale figures in oil and acrylic on linen.

I was selected by panel of Jurors for the Ad Art Show in NYC during 2020 and 2018. My work was displayed digitally in the Oculus World Trade Center on large scale screens. In November 2016 I was part of the Accessible Art Fair New York, located at the National Arts Club in New York City. I have exhibited continuously with Gallery Z in Providence, Rhode Island since 2006. I also exhibit with Van der Plas Gallery, and previously with Space Womb Gallery, and New Century Artist, in New York City.  In 2019 I had large solo exhibit at Beco Gallery in Kansas City, MO.  My paintings are part of an ongoing exhibit in Belgium and Germany with Little Van Gogh since 2000.  My paintings belong in private collections around the world including Europe, Nepal, South Korea, and Canada.
