“Beauty can transform your soul.”
Art serves many functions in our lives, and both art and beauty can be defined in many ways.
I fell in love with beads in kindergarten, when we were given the choice of stringing colorful wooden beads on shoe laces, and have been addicted to them ever since. I also have gotten much joy and satisfaction from working with textures, colors and designs. These pieces are my attempt to share that love and joy.

I am drawn to subjects with a domestic or a natural theme, and use conventional approaches that convey nostalgia and tranquility. Unafraid of color, or experimentation, however, my early training as an abstract painter still fuels a current approach to representational topics; I seek solid composition, but also playful and perhaps unexpected results. In painting, I believe, you balance your thinking: employing not too much or too little; thus, seeking to keep both the painter, and the viewer, intrigued, excited, entertained.
