In the third grade I was once so intent on drawing geometric sunbursts at my desk that when it was time for recess, my teacher Mrs. Lorenzen asked me if I would rather stay inside and draw.  "Yes," I said without hesitation.  And so, during the recent pandemic lockdowns, when we were not going out for recess I started painting again.  

 

I am fortunate to have a naturally lit space with a  mid century modern vibe. The studio was initially built by a close friend for his architectural design work, and opens to a small shady garden.  I have found great comfort there with my music, canvas and paints.

 

I try to bring color, movement  and optimism to the canvas and am drawn to organic shapes.  I like the the tactile give and take between brush and surface.  If you respond and are interested, please contact me here.  All paintings are acrylic and pencil on stretched canvas.
