About the Artist

As I am preparing to wind down my career in the mental health field, I am renewing the joy and passion for art I had as a young adult, only now with greater depth and appreciation. I have reentered the world of painting. As with my work as a therapist, I paint with the same philosophy of respectful intention and am inspired by the color, vibrancy and beauty this world has to offer. My art comes from the playful, joyful, and hopeful part of me. Respectfully, I hope it also brings hope, joy and pleasure to others.

Artist Statement

My adventure in the artworld started when I was in junior high—now you know approximately how old I am—when I took lessons at the TWCA from a wise teacher named Sylvia, who said more than once, “Needing to make art is kind of like needing to go the bathroom; you just have to do it.” At the time I thought this was extremely funny. I still think that but also know how true it is as an expression of my creative soul.When I grew up I became a psychotherapist, a field I have loved for 45 years. My art has been my source of mental rejuvenation. It gives me total joy. As a person with Cerebral Palsy I feel freedom and connection in a way that is refreshing and soulful.As I am preparing to wind down my career in the mental health field, I am renewing the joy and passion for art I had as a young adult, only now with greater depth and appreciation.
