My childhood involved watching my mother draw and paint. I was also very intrigued by my brother’s photography. So . . . from an early age, I loved to create using a pencil, paint, or camera. My first painting on canvas was a joint effort with my twin sister. After high school I completed a Bachelor Degree in Fine Art.
As an adult, I have combined my passion for travel and art by photographing many spectacular destinations. Greece, Australia, Singapore, Bali, the Caribbean islands, and many U.S locations appear in my photographs. Photography has always been a part of my life, and I have sold fine art photography for many years. During the past decade, I have also returned to painting. Many paintings are mixed media pieces that include a process of transferring my photographs to the painting surface. I enjoy combining photography and painting into one piece of art.
My special areas of interest include nature, color, design, different cultures, and abstract images. These elements are seen in various captivating ways in my artwork. I hope you enjoy viewing the images on this site. Comments are always welcome.
