I am a 5 year old abstract expressionist in a grownup’s body. I am passionate about color, movement, freedom and extending my reach as an artist. As a self-taught experimental mixed media artist with a uncompromising passion for play, I have been arting most of my life but don't feel I got serious until 20 years ago. I paint from her gut, using mostly acrylics to fasten the fleeting thoughts and emotions to canvas and paper.
I blame my Irish roots for my passion for storytelling and my works tell tales on a visceral empathic level. I love that my art can express what words cannot and I teach her process to others who have issues voicing who they are.
Just as my paintings have multiple levels of expression, I am also a wife, a mother, a published author, an educator, and an advocate for not only working outside the box, but throwing the damned thing away!
The Story Of An Artist
Once upon a time there was a little girl who wanted to be an artist like her Daddy. She tried and tried but could never make anything work out right. So she gave up on her artist dream and filled her mind and her life with other ones: being a successful entrepreneur, wife and mother.
One day, when she was all grown, her dream of being an artist found her again. There was much celebration as these two halves became whole again and the little girl welcomed the woman and vice versa.
Far from The End.
I share myself with others through my pieces and my "PlayShops" and i help others who have given up on their creative dreams to reconnect, reaffirm and rediscover that part of themselves.
