Statement

Her painting style has been labeled “fresh” with distinctive “flying brush strokes”.  Many of her paintings have strong reproductive imagery and have been selected to promote events:  Chicago Artist Month, Chicago Art Open, Midwest Business Travel Association and Ravenswood Artwalk to name a few.  She is the curator for the OpenWall Chicago Project at www.openwallchicago.org

" I create academically informed paintings that are fresh and immediate. I always return to nature, because I am fascinated with the way the vines, stems, leaves, roots and petals unfurl and stretch to the sun and nourishment. I search for how the microcosm relates to the macrocosm."

Sumi-e (East Asian ink wash painting) largely informs her work. "Meditation and planning are essential. It is impossible to correct the line once on paper. My hand betrays my inner state, requiring a balance of self-control and spontaneity. Before I begin I distill my subject’s essence in my mind.  Every brush-touch must be full-charged with meaning, with useless detail eliminated. When I paint a flower I am freed from reproduction and inspired to convey its movement and fragrance."

She is currently working on a series named: I paint my unmade beds. Combining these paintings with her poetry is important to her. "This is how I reconcile my art spirit with corporate persona. A morning meditation over my body’s imprint on hotel linens, observing yesterday’s dreams filtered by a strange city’s dawning potential. A new daylight stretches across crushed pillows and twisted covers.  Then: I suit up, paint my face and confront the business world. "
