Tell us about the genesis of your art?
My life, as I know it, was altered after the passing of my twin sister Ladell in 1999. After a debilitating grief, I began working with color on furniture, through this process I discovered the healing power of color. In 2001 I began creating images like fish, palms, and flowers on discarded cabinet doors- bright, bold, whimsical, iconic beach images. I am inspired by the beach and being near the water, it’s where I find my refuge. My work has been described by the many people that have bought and collected work as “happy, fun, and folksy”. Because of the bright colors, it will brighten any space you have it.
