After a career in nursing and healthcare activism, I now spend my time as a full time oil painter. My work not only embodies decades of deep service to others, it reflects the soul of my own human existence and vulnerability. Methods of destruction, deconstruction and rebuilding create a fusion of diverse, fractured space. Though intuitive abstraction, the work conveys a deepened state of mind imbued with cultural, physical and emotional fragmentation. Visual inspiration can come from any aspect of life: a shadow, the news, a walk in Prospect Park. It is the physical process of painting, the manipulation of form, color and line that ultimately reveals an unexpected synchronicity.
