My representational paintings are a celebration of color, light and form. The compositions exhibit formal aesthetic elements, and using soft pastels, I use a luminous and vibrant color palette that transform the formal foundation into an exciting and dynamic rendering. The work seeks to evoke the life-affirming beauty inherent in the natural world, and reveal what is extraordinary in the familiar. Ultimately, it’s not the subject matter that interests me, it's the tone, the gesture, color, light, scale and composition, that continue to absorb and inspire.
My work has been featured at venues including Arcadia Contemporary, New York, NY; ArtHamptons International Art Fair, Bridgehampton, NY; Sirona Fine Art, Hallandale Beach, FL; Arnot Art Museum, Elmira, NY; L'Atelier Berkshires, Great Barrington, MA; National Arts Club, New York, NY; and The South Street Gallery in Greenport, NY. Her paintings are held in private collections. I live and work in my home town of Manhattan. Additionally, I was awarded a signature membership to The Pastel Society of America in 2004.
