Jury - 2021 CHESTER COUNTY STUDIO TOUR
After receiving my BFA from Tyler School of Art, I continued to explore art in many different ways and through different mediums, experimenting with printmaking, photography, textile and mural arts.
It wasn't until after my son was born that I discovered my true passion for oil painting. I mostly paint still life and figures. Most recently, I have been painting fish. I love their graceful movement, vivid color and simple beauty. I love the way light hits the body of a fish and creates a luminous glow, one that I am continually striving to capture on canvas. The vessels that contain them provide endless inspiration as well. The prisms of color reflected on the rim of a bowl or the surface of the water present an exciting challenge to capture with paint.
For me, fish represent so many things - harmony, tranquility, and peacefulness, as well as feelings of loneliness and isolation.
Currently I have created a body of work consisting of paintings, prints, and photography which explorations my journey through living with and healing Lyme Disease. I also write about it in my blog called "Lyme Green"
