I believe that that is an inherent mystery and sensuality embedded deep within females. How it expresses itself is a theme in my work. I see the same sensuality in a flower petal that I see in silk chiffon, the same smart silhouette, the same vibrancy.    I think flowers can be big, bright and powerful as well as  soft, graceful and enigmatic just like a woman can be. I seek to create an energy in my work through brush stroke and color that expresses the comprehensive sweep of femininity.

I reference gardens, extensive travel and couture fashion in my paintings. Drama, effortlessness, elegance and romance are all themes in my art.
