Cradle

Cradle

A cradle gently embraces and cushions our most precious people, objects or ideas.   It is foundation – protecting and supporting.   It is origin – a place to start and to be new.   And it is home – safe and welcoming.   click here for shop...
Fresh Air

Fresh Air

A bright clear sky, dotted here and there with a few fluffy clouds and gleams of sunlight, is a restorative for me. The feel of the sun, the scents of the season carried on a breeze, and the crystal clear blue of the heavens grant me energy and joy and never fail to...

I love nature documentaries, especially those that reveal the underwater world. This piece is a nod to one I saw recently in which I watched an epic battle between a pod of dolphins and a giant shoal of sardines. The dolphins worked together in a 3d coreographed dance...
citrus

I love the look of a big bowl of citrus fruit, overflowing with oranges, lemons and limes.   Their bold primary colors bring a smile to my face and lead me thoughts of summers filled with glasses of freshly squeezed oj, key lime pies and children selling lemonade in...

I spent the weekend finishing up this piece. Unlike most of my work, it does not have a back-story but rather was driven by the colors. This segment of the rainbow – from yellow to navy – is absolutely my favorite, and my goal was to simply showcase it. So...

The advent of Spring’s additional daylight and warmer days brings the colors that I love. I am drawn to the outdoors for the pure pleasure of being surrounded by blue skies, pristine white clouds and shades of green everywhere I look. The air is that perfect...

Ask a child to draw a body of water and they’ll reach for the blue crayon, but it’s really more complicated than that – salt, fresh, river, lake, spring, frozen, ocean and more – each has it’s own palette. This piece is inspired by so many of the different shades of...

beach comber

The best time to go beach combing is at dawn after a storm. The nocturnal waves and tides have pushed hours worth of flotsam and jetsam onto the shore, and you can find treasures as the sun breaks the horizon, bathing the sands in golden light. A stroll along the...
mars

mars

7 months and 293 million miles later, Perseverance recently landed on the 4th planet from our sun. I am equally fascinated by the human ingenuity that it took to make that happen and the scenery and sounds that are beaming back to us. Mars was named for the Roman god...
