"I am completely content when I’m painting  and find that the one I’m working on leads to ideas for others faster than I can paint them. Consequently, I work on several paintings at the same time. It’s exciting to see a painting come together in the way I have envisioned it.  Sometimes it comes together totally different than my plan – and sometimes it just doesn’t work at all and ends up as collage scraps.  Surprises are what keep things interesting.

I work in watercolor, acrylic, oil, and I love the unpredictable element of Monotypes.  I have attended many workshops and become energized by each new thing I learn whether it’s a major new technique or a small tip.  Painting should be – and  is for me – a constantly changing and evolving process."

"This precious friend of mine and yours lasted five years post diagnosis that would have sent all of us on our way much earlier than expected.  Her grace and courage was a constant reminder to all of us of her special character and strength.  She will be truly missed for these and many other qualities that we were all lucky enough to have witnessed."
