I paint intuitively, starting with an idea of colors I want to use. Then a memory seems to emerge and become part of the process of building layers of color and texture. Usually this memory is based in places I’ve been, music I’ve heard or experiences I’ve had. Finding colors, textures, shapes and lines that create a
harmonious world leads me as I work. Sometimes my work is abstract and sometimes landscape based. I find that oil paint mixed with cold wax medium, acrylic paint and encaustic, pigmented hot wax, allow me to explore my process deeply. Whatever the medium, I build up layers and subtract from them until the painting feels complete. I hope my paintings connect with that luminous space inside all of us.
I grew up in Seattle and Cleveland, and then lived in Massachusetts, New York City and Canada. For the past 48 years, North Carolina has been my home. I taught first and second grade in the Chapel Hill Carrboro Public Schools for many years. I live in Carrboro with my husband Steve. We have 4 grown children and step-children and a growing number of grandchildren. I’ve been painting for the last 20 years. My work has been featured in many regional solo and group shows and has been collected nationally. I am a member of the Orange County Artists Guild, Durham Art Guild and Visual Art Exchange. I’m a member of Frank Gallery in Chapel Hill and represented by Craven Allen Gallery in Durham.
