I started making art at a very young age and have been actively promoting my artwork for more than 30 years, primarily in Eugene, OR. At age 8, I sold my first collection of gift cards at the 5th Street Public Market. I have always had a passion for, and gain inspiration from, fashion designs in old Vogue books. I love the 1920-style flapper girls and classic New York-style fashion. I love patterns, lines and color. I enjoy details and textures. As a child, I loved creating art alongside my mother and watched how she painted ceramic tiles in her own style. As I’ve gotten older, my style tends to change every five years as my life experiences inform my art’s evolution into new designs.
The hallmarks of my work are stylized eyes and lips in my paintings of women. I enjoy using mixed media, specialized papers such as papyrus, and incorporating visuals such as musical notes. You can often find a word or a sentence in the flow of the hair, an embellishment in the coffee cup, or a swirled line that disappears into a heart painting. My work honors themes of women goddesses, empowerment, spiritual connections, love, hearts and poetry.
I am available for commissioned pieces, workshops for youth and illustration projects.
