I am interested in our relationship to each other, to other species and to our environment and am drawn to the narrative behind a painting, one that I try to express through symbolism and loose associations that spark connections and allude to 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.
For the first time ever I am offering archival inkjet prints or “giclées” of one of my paintings! In the Pink has been so popular and now that the original has been sold I am offering prints on either heavy rag paper ($90) or stretched canvas ($200) in editions of 250 each. The image is 12″ x 12″ (just like the original) and the canvas print has pink edges and is wired ready for hanging. I plan on listing these with Etsy or Satchi soon but feel free to contact me directly in the mean time.

The Art Docents of Los Gatos held an absolutely delightful High Tea at my studio last May. This fancy, catered event was sold out, raising funds to bring art to the students of our community. We were treated to tiers of gourmet treats while drinking tea from my antique teacups. I shared the process behind my Birds & Teacups.
I am proud to announce that my painting End of Spring has been licensed by Doubleday Canada to grace the cover of The Memento, a stunning new novel by acclaimed author Christy Ann Conlin. Orders can be placed at Amazon.ca or through your local bookstore.
