I work on different series, sometimes simultaneously.  Most of my art is abstraction or somewhat impressionistic.  They deal with emotion, reality and life experiences.  I work mostly on a large format, most often 48"x60" or slightly smaller.  My work has been shown for many years in venues such as The Carnegie Museum of Art, The Warhol Museum, and many individual and group shows.  I enjoy working with many colors, with works appearing optimistic and beautiful, even though the subject matter may be deeper and more meaningful.  My degree in psychology, former work with art and music therapy, as well as a music director influence my art.
