A lover of sunny days, I am often drawn to the depiction of light and shadow. Watercolors, most often, are the medium I choose. I enjoy layering colors adjacent to the intense pristine white of the paper. These landscapes, very often, have been painted onsite. My landscapes reflect bucolic setting across the country as well as within my home in Queens, N.Y.
Running has been a major pastime for me. The training, the races, the long runs, the marathons and the half-marathons...it's all about passion, desire, letting yourself go, and believing that the finished product will somehow resemble what it looked like in your dreams ... kind of like art, no?
I find myself reaching for oils when molding my human forms. I savor the experience of blending pigments until they melt into a smooth skin-like sheen. Women are depicted frequently as sensual, in my compositions. I strive to have them convey both strength and self-acceptance.
