Artist Statement

I'm incluenced by my environs and travels. Using acrylics and pastels, I celebrate color, light and shape, reflecting the joy from even the simplest of objects. My work is intense, with bold colors and impasto paint application.

My partner/husband, Gary, prpares the canvases or gessoed archival boards on which i paint. I usually begin by underpainting areas with a complementary (warm versus cool) wash of color. I am very active while painting, mocing constantly, energized by the music of the day.

I use no medium with my paints and do not premix my colors, merely pulling separate colors onto the same brush and letting them blend (and stay fresh) as i apply them to my surface.

My work is included in the permanent collections of, among others: Ortho McNeil Pharmaceuticals, Dallas, TX; Greater Orlando Aviation Authority, Orlando, FL; McGraw-Hill Publishing Companies, NY, NY; Fox Chase Cancer Center, Philadelphia, Pa; Rodale Press, Emmaus, Pa; Lancaster General Women & Babies Hospital, Lancaster, PA; Fieldcrest, Lancacster, PA; and Lancaster Museum of Art, Lancaster, PA. I am also included in private collections nationally and internationally.
