I've been drawing people since before i could write my name. Obsessed with trying to capture a likeness and the beauty of the human form, i spent my childhood sketching classmates and teachers, doodling fancy ladies in the margins of my homework, writing volumes of comics, and illustrating fairy tales.
After earning my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting and dance at Antioch University, i raised three children and a herd of milk goats on a farm in the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia. There i learned about gardening and herbal medicine, chopping wood and environmental activism, counseling and African drumming.
My three children, now grown up, are my favorite models and can be seen in many of the paintings. When we first moved to the island of Kaua'i, i drew my kids as mermaids for fun, which led to lots of mermaid portraits and a local reputation as the Mermaid Lady. I've drawn pastel portraits from life on gallery porches and art walks, created many commissioned paintings of couples, and focused on the faces, strengths and struggles of the local community.
Now into my third decade of living on Kauai, i love to paint, dance, play drums, sleep under the stars, and swim with dolphins and whales. I teach Nonviolent Communicationand am the founder of Love Tribe drum and dance ensemble and Aloha Africa cultural exchange project.
I paint real people as timeless archetypes, in order to express who we really are, underneath... the pure human being, not the doing we get caught up in, I'm always looking for the facial and gestural expression that reveals the qualities we long to live fully: the vitality of inner power, inherent belonging to Nature, and deeply relaxed trust in life,
