I am interested in our relationship to each other, to other species and to our environment. I am drawn to the narrative behind a painting, one that I try to express through symbolism and loose associations that spark connections and reveal truths that lie just beneath the surface. Often dark or playful, but always beautiful because it is beauty that touches our soul and opens our hearts and minds.

I would like to invite you to my Wall of Rainbows Pop-up!
In celebration California opening up, I will be holding a “Wall of Rainbows” pop-up from June 15th -19th! This is the first time that my #morerainbows series, that I have been working on during this pandemic, will be exhibited en masse – I can’t wait to see hundreds of these silk rainbows embroidered onto vintage photographs filling an entire studio wall! Wonderful collectors who have been reserving their favorite pieces throughout the pandemic will finally be able to see them in person and take them home!
If there a piece you would like to reserve let me know, they are all up on Instagram! If you cannot make it in person, no problem, I will ship work when the pop-up comes down. Most of the rainbows are available at $200 each with the largest valued at $500. I will cover taxes and shipping.
Send me a note if you would like to book a 30-45 min studio visit. I will be at the studio daily from 9 – 5 and in the evening by request. Please note that the path to my studio is uneven and sadly not wheelchair accessible. Rest assured that I have been fully vaccinated and will be keeping the windows open and a mask on hand
Thanks you to everyone who has been following my rainbows over this past year, it has been so meaningful to me to create and share a little bit of joy and hope!
