I paint to communicate in a way that words won’t let me express. My work is about the process; the use of light and scale; the strength of color.
In my first career as a Speech Pathologist, I channeled creativity to find alternative communication methods for children who could not express themselves through conventional means. It was a striking reminder of how powerful and raw communication is at its core.
In 2013, I returned to my first love of art, and I began redirecting my creative energy back into painting. It is where I feel most authentic. I live in Tampa FL, with my wonderful husband and children. I paint in my studio at the Santaella Studios for the Arts.
My latest body of work, Habitats, explores transitions in life. I was inspired by what it means to have a safe place to inhabit, to return to, and to move on from.
