She is influenced by the work of Paul Klee, The Russian Constructivists and Midcentury Modern design.

One decaf in the morning from the french press (on a good day). On a day where I need more help, 1-2 cups from the coffee maker!

Alma Thomas, Chagall, Klee, Rothko, O'Keefe (forever!)

Why is art important to you?

I love words, but I believe that visual language speaks to a different place in the human heart.

When I'm not making art, I'm (a) ...

Walking and observing the world around me. I like walking the same paths and noting different things each time. I see the way a shadow falls on a building or the way a tree is responding to the season.
