I'm a classically trained still life painter with a background in graphic design. I’ve had studio space in the Northrup King Building for 5 years and it’s a fantastic space to work and show my paintings.
My latest series started when I decided to let my imagination dictate the compositions. I want to create a fresh, slightly humorous take on still life. Paintings started popping into my head fully formed while I was in a half awake state. Dreaming of floating fruit and walking teapots sent me towards expressing the human condition through anthropomorphic vignettes. By the use of objects as opposed to figures, I'm taking out gender and cultural cues and hoping everyone can relate to the stories. I describe my work as: colorful, warm, joyful, positive, graphic, clean, modern, whimsical.
Open Studio Hours: Open Saturdays 12 - 4pm, and for all Northrup King Building events. I also welcome appointments.
