Echoes of Eden

The light in the new studio has been informing the work in so many happy ways…A new series has captured my heart and imagination. My plan is to show some of them in July at Art Santa Fe . I hope you all enjoy !

Hope this New Year finds all of you happy, healthy and ready to get after some dreams this year! I have been on a month long break from painting as a dream comes true in the form of a remodeled studio for me!! A few more weeks to go before I can get back to work but I know it will be worth the wait!! What dreams are you chasing this year?

HAPPIEST NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!

Channeling Emotions

 

as cliche as it sounds, artists draw from life to inspire their work… In my case I draw from the joyful energy that has filled our home this Summer. With an ever happy and playful 4 year old and a hubby with big projects happening at work I can’t help but draw from all this movement, energy, fun and positivity and put it onto the canvas. I am so thankful for all these blessings, which I hope to give back to the world through this work…

Summer

Through the heat of Summer these blues have kept me cool in the studio. Working larger and experimenting with ways to simply get paint onto the surface, moving it from here to there, this series grows. If you are local to Southern California you can see the first two pieces at OC Contemporary Gallery in San Clemente 🙂
