I grew up in a suburb of Chicago, Illinois where my parents instilled in their three daughters an appreciation for music, the arts and anything creative. Mother was a concert pianist, Dad designed clocks, big and small. I will always be grateful for their gentle, helpful and encouraging guiding hand. As a young adult I would visit the Art Institute of Chicago to gaze in awe and bewilderment at the works of art. I determined to express my feelings with a paintbrush rather than words. My main source of inspiration the sky—billowy clouds, breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, the mystery and romanticism of a moon rising. Putting down moods and motion in colors, colors unmatched in the artists’ palette, is my constant challenge. My paintings are personal statements of my love for the sky, sea, land, and people—statements characterized by bold, sweeping brush strokes alive with motion and color.
