Formally trained as an Interior Designer, her Art has a contemporary aspect that is ideal for modern construction, and commercial applications.

"Painting to me is as much about emotion and intention as it is structure and technique. My goal with each piece is to create something that speaks to me and generates interest for others. I love it when people talk about my work, seeing and feeling different things, everyone has their own interpretation.
I tend to work on many different paintings at the same time, often having dozens on the go until they have reached their completion. Some come together quickly, but others wait several years to be ready for the final signature."
