My  painting process transformed from making plans and

goals to a more intuitive beginning and in the moment response


Color and shapes lost their former roles as descriptors of objects

 and took on new life as flow and expressiveness.

This new development  echoes my spiritual journey through life.

If I trust the goodness of life, it has always led me to a to a place of resolution and bliss.


I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Cranbrook Academy of Art,

and a Master of Fine Arts degree from Rochester Institute of Technology.
