I have always been inspired by Vincent Van Gogh and his impressionistic style. This is where my interest in art as therapy developed because I completely believe that Vincent’s painting was his therapy to deal with life. Another huge influence on my art is Georgia O’Keefe and the way she focused in on objects to show another way to look at objects and their beauty.
I love to paint stories through a series of works. Recently my last two series have come from books I have read that includes history. I have a series of 10 acrylic paintings of Underground Railroad Quilts. I love the story about how the Williams family used quilts to guide them to freedom.
Currently I am working on a series of acrylic flower paintings after reading about each flower meaning in a book titled The Language of Flowers. I participated in the 2018 Winterfest and this is where I met artists who encouraged me to participate in the GH Open Studio Tour.
