Sailor . . . Artist . . . Mermaid . . . tremendously influenced by the colorful sights and sounds around me.
Life has taken me to many beautiful and exotic locations where the sights, sounds, and colors of Mother Nature have mostly been my source of inspiration. I now live, create, work, and play on a sailboat where my boyfriend, Russ and I cruise the Bahamas, Florida Keys, the East Coast, and wherever the wind will blow us aboard our beloved boat Bliss. You can follow our adventures at #SailingBliss.
style, media, and technique:
My style is generally expressionistic, happy, and very colorful. In the past, I tended to use mostly green media in the form of paints which are watercolor, water based resists, and water based dyes. I also did embellish much of my paintings with ink. Living and cruising aboard a sailboat, I have switched to acrylic due to its ease of use in a constantly moving studio on a constantly moving canvas in my Sailing Studio.
Mother Nature and the ocean are my muse and source of inspiration. There is nothing like living amongst the wild. From beautiful swaying palms, sea turtles, the motion and beauty of the ocean, endless varieties of fish, gorgeous beaches, water colors of the Bahamas, butterflies, flowers, exotic birds, etc. I have more joyful ideas than I could ever create. It’s hard to focus with so much beauty. I love photography also and try to capture aesthetically beautiful moments to hopefully recreate at a later time on canvas.
I love to capture the personalities of all kinds of animals through my paintings . . . especially beloved pets. Allow me the honor of painting a portrait of and/or memorializing your furry, feathery, slimy, or whatever pet family!
