SEIZE THE DAY WITH DYNAMIC ART
If you’re like me, you wake up ready to seize the day (OK, maybe ‘seizing’ happens after a cup of coffee!). Maybe you run a business just as I do, and you’re driven by a personal or business quest. Whatever you do, you pursue it for the pure passion, pleasure and challenge of it all.
All this means you don’t have a lot of time to find the art you want. As an artist and business owner, I understand. I make decisions quickly, on instinct, and love working with people who are equally passionate, vital and busy. I make the buying experience as easy as possible for you to have the art that captures your spirit and excites you.

Innovations in My Studio
‘Nothing like I’ve ever seen,’ is a comment I most often here when someone first encounters my artwork. This pleases me no end, as I create my mixed-media by always challenging myself to use novel materials in unique ways to create something beautiful and captivating.
I spend hours on research and experimentation - so much so that innovation is really part of the flow of my artistic process. To my knowledge, I am the first to:
- Manipulate printed layers of photography on hard surfaces to create fine art wall sculptures for either indoor or outdoor use
- Develop a process that I named ‘Resin Splash’ to add play of light and dynamic movement to my work
- Blend materials that have rarely - if ever - been combined to create artwork: resin, photography, natural materials, paint and glass
- Create the first printed photographic, mixed-media water fountain
Water. I just love it. Funny I live in Scottsdale, Arizona - but this is actually an oasis in the desert, a resort town that loves water. So, this Pisces is pretty happy here.
This said, I get to the beach with my family as much as possible. Carmel-by-the-Sea is one of our top destinations because it's such a dog-friendly place. When my husband Dan and I drive, we bring along our Cavalier King Charles Spaniels Happy, Lady & Lucy. There is nothing that brings us more pleasure than seeing them play on the beach. It's awesome!
I grew up by a pond in Greenwich, CT on the East Coast, but most of my time was spent inland, where I grew to love the flowers and trees my parents nurtured at our family home. You will see that plants play a big part of my art collection because of them.
So, when not traveling to the beach, I hang out with Dan and the dogs by our own pool. It's salt water, so we pretend we are in the Mediterranean. ;-) Dan and I while away the hours doing crosswords - we do them together, taking turns (very hard to do just one clue!). I also love reading, mostly mysteries, thrillers and historical novels. I spend a lot of time in my art studio, so I like something that takes me away from my art musings and let's my brain rest and recharge.
Paying it Forward
I want to feel connected to the world on a larger scale and make a tangible difference. Water.org has become my charity of choice. They provide safe water and sanitation to families around the world. When you buy a piece of art valued over $500 directly from me or any of my galleries, I will donate $60 to help Water.org provide clean water and sanitation to a family of four.
