Welcome to my world! As a journalist & painter, I’m drawn to the raw emotion in daily living. Fact & feeling light the way. Color defines each moment. Words drum a heartbeat.
I love working with oil paint and tend to glob it onto canvasses in thick, rich colors. In some ways, I feel like I’m icing a canvas instead of a cake. My goal is to create paintings that feel so textural and beautiful that you’ll wish you could eat them. :)
This is important because I’m on a regimen that’s gluten-free, wheat-free, sugar-free….sigh. Painting has become one of the sweetest treat I’ve ever experienced! My passion took off in 2009, when I began classes at the Art Students League of New York.
Today, I think of myself as the JournalArtist™. My first life as a journalist has been transformed by my new life as an artist. Most of my paintings are small squares — either 6-inch x 6-inch or 10-inch x 10-inch. I’ve also included a drawing.
