My paintings are inspired by experiences of outdoor places. During 2020 we spent more time outside during the global pandemic to seek safety and connection to neighbors to overcome isolation. Neighborhood “outdoor rooms” in front and back yards or on the street became our gathering places. We heard about isolation from loved ones, job loss, stress from working at home and school at home. We lost track of time because our social patterns changed to isolation.

Grateful that Summer Leaves 1 painting was juried into the Salon des Refuses’ Exhibition. This is a national juried art competition that is on exhibit from September 2, 2023 – January 2, 2024. This contemporary art exhibit will be on display in the Ancient Sculpture Museum.
