In 2006 she has created a new and unique textural approach to impressionism. She wants to bring hope, harmony, and awareness to the observer through her colorful artistic works. Being a strong believer that art can create a common ground even when there are walls and differences in our globalized world community, she draws her inspiration from the possibilities in life.
I have lived in France and Brazil, with extensive travels in Western Europe where I steeped myself in the worlds of art, culture, and history. These powerful experiences formed the foundation of my core values as an artist.
Everyone needs acceptance and a sense of community and sometimes we let cultural differences put a wall up to prevent others in. If one would look around the world and travel they would see what I’ve seen, that love is love, hate is hate, hate is everywhere, love is everywhere and in everyone. Emotions cross the boundaries of cultures and emotions are at the core of art. Art can help break down the walls of our differences.
My style as an oil painter is landscape impressionism. I feel there is an energetic relation between emotions and the colors I use. I listen to my instinct and relate the colors to the experience I paint. I smell the air and picture myself there in my paintings. My goal is to draw my viewers into the paintings with me, for them to escape to another place to find peace, harmony, or majestic power. Art can help ease the stress of your normal day to day life, your work, your relationships, your fears, and troubles.
I use texture to give the paintings life when you are looking at the sunflowers in “Sunflowers on a Windy Day” you can feel the wind gently brush across your face, you can hear it whisper through the flowers as they softly sway against one another and you feel at peace. In “Point Break” I have a giant wave where you can feel the power behind Mother Nature as she crashes along the point break and you can smell the salt of the sea as it washes you away.
My responsibility as an artist is to cross cultures and bring awareness of events around the world and to help make the world a better place, to bring joy to people.
