“My work is about color, symbol, humor, people, the rational mind, the irrational mind, the world we see, the world we don’t. If the personal in art does not touch the universal, it is narcissism. Inward directed art should reach a spirit that links it to a wider being.”

About the Artist

I have been enchanted with color since childhood, when I made my own coloring books with paper my father brought home from Aetna Life Insurance Co. I started working right after high school to escape home and earn money for art school. After many detours, including work on a kibbutz and traveling through Europe, I started at DAAP, University of Cincinnati, as a painting major, with a minor in film. I started my life as a painter in a little roachy apartment on Court Street in downtown Cincinnati, above the apartment where Hudson, a performance artist, lived.   I had several exhibits, won some prizes, then married an artist/bartender/insurance agent. Had a little baby boy. I thought illustration might be fun so went back to school at the Art Academy of Cincinnati for a couple of years. I did illustration and produced work for magazines, newsletters, CD covers, calendars, posters, all kinds of things. I continued to paint and draw, and was part of a group of artists who exhibited in Germany in 2000. I changed my style to abstract around 2005. Currently I am represented by Wheelhouse Gallery (formerly BDeemer Gallery) in Louisville, KY.
