See the Spring Issue of East Coast Living Magazine for an article featuring my dining room and some of my art collection.
I’ve layered art pieces we love and have collected over time, with my own artwork, to help tell our family’s story.

Finding Depth Show May 11-June 2
These mixed media works are created using many layers of acrylic, sand, inks, and resin. They have a depth, dimension, and texture that is impossible to capture fully in a photo.

Why do I paint the ocean? I was asking the question repeatedly.
The answer came to me out of the blue, while painting deep water. It felt familiar. As though I knew it all along, and had only forgotten it for a while.
The answer is this: The process of painting ocean makes me joyful and calm. Centered. Like meditation. Like therapy. Making art for art sake is the purpose. It is deep, yet so simple.
"Smell the sea and feel the sky,
let your soul and spirit fly,
into the mystic"
Bermuda Society of Arts Spring Member's Show May 4-29
Update: These works are still available from the gallery. Please contact Gallery Director, Nzingha Ming.
I am very pleased to be exhibiting with BSoA for their Spring Member's Show. This group show runs from May 4-29th. If you are in Bermuda please stop by to see the show.
I was lucky enough to call Bermuda home for a number of years. My family has very strong ties to the island. My time spent living in a Bermudian cottage on a hill overlooking the sea still shapes my art to this day.
Four shiny mixed media works are included in the show. Each one features a different aerial view of the Bermudian coastline, and includes real purified Bermuda pink sand. Two have waves and two are calm and quiet, like the one pictured here,"And Still I Believe".
