“My work is about my life...what lives in my heart, what touches my soul. I use a wide variety of materials and techniques to capture the color, texture and feel of little things and simple pleasures....I combine good draftsmanship with abstraction. I also seek to incorporate the irresistible rhythms and jam-session style of jazz into my work.” Her large works are primarily oil on canvas. The use of found objects, gold, silver and copper leaf reflect light and create an ever-changing surface.
