Do you remember your excitement the first time you cut an apple differently and found the star?

My art explores keeping that wonder. Colorful, whimsical art, fabric and surface design. 



"A New Day, Ocean Sunrise"


Focus on the horizon, find the ocean, and the explosion of color becomes an ocean sunrise. A new day!


While experimenting with poured paint on a large canvas, a sunrise appeared. The finished painting reminded me of glorious sunrises framed by palm trees that I've photographed at Vero Beach, Florida. Looking at this painting made me happy. I photographed the image and digitally played around with it to design a poster. 


You may not see what I see in this explosion of color, but I trust that the thought or memory of an ocean sunrise brings you a sense of peace and joy. Focus on your horizon
