A promise from my friends and me

I talked to the Sky

And he told me he feels

Better when there is no rain.


I talked to the Wind

And he told me he feels

Better when there are no mountains.


I talked to your heart

And he told me very loudly

He is happier when he is only with me.


You should expect no rain,

No mountains,

And happiness;

A promise from my friends Sky, Wind and me.

Together for ever


You are the moon

And I am the tallest peak

In the world blindly in love with you.


I am happy

Because I know I will see you

Tonight and admire your immense beauty again.


You are glad

Because you know I will see

You with loving eyes until the end of time.



And me

The first time

The first time I fell in love

Knowing that I was not

The chosen one…

I wrote a haiku to sadness.


The first time I met someone

Who smiled at me and liked

My crazy personality…

I wrote a poem of hope


The first time I tasted sweet kisses

With my eyes closed and

My heart singing…

I wrote a song to love           


The first time I could take a moment

To think about my past

And my lucky life…

I wrote a story of happiness.


First, I wrote a haiku to sadness,

Then, a poem of hope,

Next, I wrote a song to love,

And finally, I wrote a story of happiness.

Artist Statement:
My goal is to appreciate and learn from every day and every experience. Small, simple moments are what really matter in a lifetime. Long lasting relationships are built out of enduring and appreciating the everyday.

Color is absolutely one of the most memorable elements of a moment for me. I often start a painting with a quick sketch or mark and then a flood of color. The memory of a color can often be the catalyst for an entire painting or even series of paintings. Following my initial mark making and color choice, each layer of the work is created in response to the previous one. After several layers are applied the painting has a history of its own. The texture of this history can be seen in the layers of paint and collage that build up.

Mixed media including acrylic, latex, pastel, graphite, ink, & oil pastel are favored painting mediums but I often incorporate found, reclaimed, and recycled materials into my pieces. Clothing, particularly that of family members will often find its way into my paintings. I have a definite affinity for handmade and vintage fabrics as well. These time worn pieces carry a sense of history and wisdom with them. I strive to capture and memorialize some of this energy in my paintings. In an effort to connect with history, recently I have been incorporating techniques from traditional craftwork into my paintings. You can see both sewing and knitting techniques, among others at times. Very often, I am using articles made by my own hand.
