Ackknowledging a love of history, art, music and science, the artist covers a wide spectrum of subjects from portraits to astronomical phenomena to large-scale still life. Her imagery ranges from photo real to a more impressionistic and playful use of reality. Intense colors enhance the moments in time and the experience of the viewer as he takes in the artist's vision whether floating in space or contemplating a pomegranate. Her latest work has focused on interpreting astrophoto imagery in oils and pastels as well as portraits in oil.
