We met at an abstract art class - four artists with different
backgrounds and styles, developing our skills in abstract art. We continue to gather weekly to support and inspire one another.

I create for the purpose of getting lost and letting my mind relax. There is no destination or final product in mind...just color explorations, lines, and forms that I find pleasing in the moment. When the moment passes, I may paint over it or hang it up. It all depends on whether the connection I make with the piece is like a passerby I saw in the train or a good old friend I want to have around forever.

I studied Art History at Smith College and worked in museums until a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis early in my career shifted my interest to creating art. While I've always been influenced by artists like Ben Shan, Jacob Lawrence, Paul Klee, Laszlo Moholoy-Nagy and the Bauhaus Movement, recently I'm exploring abstract art. I work mostly with acrylics, colored pencil, pencil and mixed media.

After many years of artistic realism, I love the freedom of painting abstracts in acrylic. With a blank canvas and free mind there are so many possibilities. From tight geometrics reflecting my engineering background to complex layered amorphisms. I start most work with a soft background, leaving portions of the white canvas, adding one color then another, hard lines over blended space,  texture over smooth surface, pallet knife over brush .  I love contrasts in tone and color. Always exploring.

As a math and science person, I tend to prefer doing realistic, representational paintings - portraits and landscapes in particular - because I can tell when I am 'getting it right'. Abstract art pushes me out of this comfort zone and allows me to simply enjoy the experience of playing with paint.
