I believe that abstract art invites the mind to see something different each time you experience it, bringing a never-ending interest in a singular piece.
My paintings are mostly lyrical or geometric abstraction with acrylic paint on canvas. I choose bright colors which I find uplift the mood for myself and for those who see my artwork. Feeling liberated by the free-flowing delivery of lines, I enjoy allowing the composition to pour out from me intuitively. The process of its creation allows me to express myself in a nonconforming manner, much differently than in the other facets of my life.
I began painting daily as a distraction from my grief from losing my brother. I instead found a deeper connection with him through creating my art while listening to classic rock, the music for which he and I shared a passion.
I am also the author of the Cooper the Dog children's book series, attorney, and mother of five. Although not inherently brave, I have donated a kidney and walked on fire.
