Title or Location: A bridge to cross
My husband saw a video on Instagram of someone using marbles in ink rolling around on a paper. There was an empty frame on top to keep marbles in. I tried it and loved the results. It is random lines that make different designs. This one I used a black brush pen to add more darks in spaces. It really made the paper pop!

Title or Location: Foot Steps
Have wanted to paint for many years and with retirement started with Oil Paint in April 2023. I wanted to try Acrylics for its fast drying time. This is my Fourth Acrylic painting. I want to emphasize the three primary colors when I can as they are foundational colors. I?m inspired by the beauty of nature and strive to capture its amazing scenes that play out before us day by day.

In hues of emerald and royal blue,A tale unfolds, both old and true.Peacocks, regal in their dance,Majestic plumage, a courtship trance.Born of India, a national gem,Feathers kissed by royalty, a diadem.Congo's pride in darker hue,A party of peafowl, a colorful crew.Flight in short bursts, a majestic glide,Through skies and dreams, they coincide.Nature's party, a vibrant soiree,In groups they stay, not alone, but in play.A symphony of rustling, a train's sweet rattl

Title or Location: Live Wedding Painting
Back in 2016 I began getting requests to do live wedding paintings. I paint the wedding as I see it (per the couple's request) and whether it's the first dance, first kiss, saying the vows, walking down the aisle, etc., I paint it on scene in 4-6 hours, take it home and clean it up, and deliver it usually (usually is the operative word) within 10-14 days.

Title or Location: Down By The River
This painting was inspired by a picture one of my clients had taken when she was sitting on the James River. I used acrylic paint with a resin glaze over it including stones and wood in it so you could feel the textures of the outside .

Title or Location: Lighting of the Cressets
If you are a local or even a visitor in the late fall, you know this street scene in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia. One of my favorite times of the year is to be there in person when they light these burning baskets of wood to illuminate the night on Duke of Gloucester Street. I can?t image what it was like in the not-too-distant past, before street lights and electricity were the norm! Just being there during the late fall season takes me to a simpler time in history. 12" x 9", This is pain

Title or Location: Vivi
This painting is part of a collection I am working on called the Beautiful Project. The Beautiful Projects lifts up everyday people in our communities doing amazing things. People nominate people in their lives they think are beautiful. Then we sit down and have a discussion about why. They give me a bunch of pictures and I paint the beautiful person and write up a story about what I found that was beautiful about them as I painted. Vivi is beautiful because she never gives up.

Title or Location: BLOOM
BLOOM is one of my largest pieces to date, consisting of layers of acrylic paint and marker to create intermingled layers of texture, colour and interest. My artwork as a whole aims to explore beauty and chaos as one and the same in a neurodivergent mind. I have ADHD and my art is a representation of what it's like to be inside my brain. Bright, busy, all at once, all the time. Through this I aim to foster a feeling of belonging and connectedness for people, largely neurodivergent people like me

Title or Location: Freshwater Blue, oil on canvas, 30" square
I have a solo exhibit coming up in September at Gallery 114 in downtown Portland. I wanted to do a new body of work, and since I also like to garden I decided to do abstract florals. It's challenging trying something new, but I love a good challenge!

Title or Location: Another fall in Philadelphia
This was inspired by some of the Manayunk steps. There are so many and as a kid I had to use them occasionally to go to school. It was a work out even then!

Title or Location: Together Forever
Together Forever.The story behind this family portrait is quite sad. My friend Iris Costanilla commissioned me to paint a portrait of her family of 4. The sad part is, they never had a photograph of the 4 of them together. Her husband Bruce had frequently been away from home since he was a US citizen and was required to do so. While in the US, Bruce was diagnosed as being terminally ill with cancer and was unable to return to his family in the Philippines. After his death, Iris gave me a pho
