Artist's Statement -
'The technical aspects of painting remain the same...necessary and essential, however, they are as unconsciously accomplished when I work as is breathing. The painting draws out the heart and soul of me... simply by me picking up the palette knife and brush and allowing the piece to live. I do not question this...and by my acceptance of it, each painting takes on a life and purpose of its own. Through this amazing act of creation, I am grateful to share my love and joy with the world.'
"Her work is an open interpretation of a universal subject - space, or perhaps light, or perhaps the two combined - that recalls images as disparate as Turner's oceans, Monet's sun rises and Stieglitz's cloud studies. At one glance an image seems merely to be piles of paint; at a second, it has become a textured horizon." wrote one ARTisSpectrum Magazine critic.
