This is my first piece using green instead of blue – it has a more earthy feel and I love it! The resin is poured on top of the color, making a beautiful shine in contrast with the matte finish of the texture. Makes you just want to reach out and touch it! You can […]
“These lights, this brightness, these clusters of human hope, of wild desire – I shall take these lights in my fingers. I shall make them bright and whether they shine or not, it is in these fingers that they shall succeed or fail.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald
“Long ago, men went to sea, and women waited for them, standing on the edge of the water, scanning the horizon for the tiny ship. Now I wait for Henry. He vanishes unwillingly, without warning. I wait for him. Each moment that I wait feels like a year, an eternity. Each moment is as slow […]
“You see, I am a poet, and not quite right in the head, darling. It’s only that.” – Edna St. Vincent Millay Texture, resin, coffee dyed pieces of The Great Gatsby, acrylic, pen and ink I have two more I’m working on that will look lovely stacked with this one.

Scott Fitzgerald I overthink. A lot. Ha. I suppose I am of a first-rare intelligence. Heavily textured, resin, pieces […]
I am working on building my collection of abstracts and painting with a friend is always fun. I’m so thankful my career allows me the time to do this over Christmas break. Interested in one of my abstracts? Now is the time to talk to me about it!
I had a little bit of time to spend in the studio over Thanksgiving break and I was able to lay the foundations for a couple of new paintings. The circle has so many symbolic meanings and I am a bit crushing on all of them right now so look for a few circles to dominate my abstracts over the holidays!
This was my very first abstract. The idea came to me when I was prepping a background for another painting. I have always textured the backgrounds with modeling medium in circular shape. My daughter was playing around with resin on some of her paintings and I thought it might be cool to add some small […]
The blue in this one made this painting pop for me. “We have to get used to the idea that at the most important crossroads in our life there are no signs.” -Ernest Hemingway The Hemingway quote is true for my life – I have encountered many a decision that I was suddenly faced with […]
I love how this turned out! The texture is so much fun. I delight in finding ways to make texture the focus of a piece and this painting kept me mesmerized. You cannot see in a photo the juxtaposition of matte paint against the shiny resin in the stream – but it is beautiful.
