Drawing inspiration from the natural world and the beauty of Ojai Valley she strives to create vessels reminiscent of the arts and crafts movement with a contemporary twist.

Because modern urban life is so often stressful and hectic I am always trying to create paintings that take you to a place: quiet and serene, and a place of solitude and meditation. My goal in painting is to express this serenity in both my landscapes and nautical paintings. In this last series of paintings, I focused in on the simplicity of small boats in calm waters, their simple shapes and their reflections.
Like so many of us, I share memories of happy days spent on and near the water with family and friends. I wanted to take the viewer back in time to remember those special days. I hope you find a feeling of peacefulness, calm and tranquility in my paintings.
