I was born in Asheville, North Carolina, where my parents were going to Art School at Black Mountain College. We moved to California and I was raised in Topanga Canyon, near Los Angeles. Creativity was the family religion. I studied drawing, painting, weaving and stained glass. Painting has become my favorite medium and I am dedicating myself to this work.
Color moves me. Shape and line are a path to follow. The activity of applying paint to a canvas, whether it is with brush or pallet knife or throwing liquid paint can feel like dancing. I empty my mind before I start working as if I am going to meditate. I check in with my inner climate and then I choose the colors that speak to me.  I find the process of painting mysterious and that feeling of mystery is an inspiration to me. I dont want to take it apart or analyze it. I want to paint and let the color and shape flow through me and develope on the canvas.
