My favorite medium is:

watercolor and inks

The best place to create my work is:

outside or in my garage studio

I am most inspired by:

Nature and travel. I'm always looking at the lines and light that nature offers. It's especially fun to visit a new corner of the world and bask in the different design aesthetics as well as see the amazing natural art in new flora and fauna.

The craziest thing I've ever done to create an art piece was:

Hmmmm! Painting with found objects from nature. I used all different kinds of things instead of brushes from twigs to pine cones.

I'm currently working on:

A pillow collection to be presented for 2020, a new Holiday design for my company and a new clutch bag.

I collect:

Art! I love to have my walls filled with original paintings.

I love to paint and even paint in my dreams. Color is candy to me and there is frequent delight watching the interaction of unexpected combinations. Painting without any preconceived idea feels like an interpretive dance that is responding to something beyond me. When asked, I can paint in a detailed style, but loose watercolors make me the happiest! I love that one has to relinquish control and leave some things up to the paint, the water, the brush and the paper. It's exciting to think of the collective social consciousness that is behind every piece of art - from the person who cut the tree for paper, to the animal who gave some hairs for the brush, to the person who now enjoys it in their home.
