MY WORK

 

Influenced by a life-long career as a graphic designer and illustrator and by my own surrealist painter-father, my modern-impressionist style can look nearly abstract when viewed up close and almost photo-realistic from a distance. 

Fascinated by people and design, I capture “unsuspecting” pedestrians and cityscapes in my paintings,  incorporating familiar and comfortable shapes, while emphasizing shadows and great color.  I hope to show the viewer the whimsy in everyday life among the buried secrets of strangers, surrounded by the architecture of both nature and man.

ABOUT...

​As a young girl, I often accompanied my father into "the city" from the East Bay, helping him lug his many gorgeous, oil painted canvases and heavy easels from the large trunk of his blue Maverick into the colorful atmosphere and characters of the Embarcadero Square.  A founding member of the Street Artists Association in San Francisco, my father surrounded himself each and every Saturday with authentic working/starving artists and craftsmen. Those years of raw creativity and sacrifice for one's art left its indelible impression.

This collection truly allows me the freedom to express my true self. Thoughtful, large and bold, I can lose myself for hours inside of each one, as I take apart the images and carefully put them back together emphasizing colors, rhythms and patterns, bridging the gap between abstraction and realism.  

30+ years as a graphic designer and illustrator certainly leaves it's impression on everything I create, but these works allow me to truly work outside that box.

My father has been gone since 2011, but the memory of his colorful life lifts me every day I get to hold that brush.

I would truly love to hear from you.
