My inspiration is found all around me. Much of my work involves nature, the sensual flow of hills colliding together or the complexity of a leaf. I am an avid people watcher. I will sit on the train and create stories in my mind of who the people are around me. My cartoons are what I do when I want a break from my other work. It is an indulgence I only get to do once in a while. I find myself in a good mood and giggle the whole time I am making one. The crazy people I depict are more likely than not a mixture of many people I know or have passed on the street or yelled at in traffic! My professional inspirations include Georgia Okeefe, Tamara Delempke, and Edward Hopper.
I am fascinated with form and color. Even though my medium and subject matter changes you will see form and color always play an important role. Movement is something else I love. I want your eye to move around the art as it reveals its story. My education was in fine art but I worked in advertising from the late 70s into the 80s. You will see the graphic edge present in many of my works.
