The visions I get from dreaming have always been an important part of my paintings and drawings.
Sometimes it is only a small element in the corner of a painting, at other times it becomes the whole painting.
But, not being independently wealthy, of course I had to make a living. I studied graphic design and painting at Ohio University, Athens, Ohio. I moved to New York City where my first job was becoming a member of a unique graphics department for NBC news. We all won an EMMY for outstanding design. I stayed there for about 5 years.
I then decided to take a break from the city life and move to Zimbabwe with my new husband. He had been the head chef at Chobe Game Lodge in Botswana. We applied for and were hired to run Bumi Hills Safari Lodge on Lake Kariba. This was an experience that I will never forget; elephants and rhino and zebra and lions and hippos and cape buffalo and wart hogs and huge snakes and amazing insects and gorgeous birds and the wonderful people of Zimbabwe.
During this time in Zimbabwe, I got my private pilot's license and the stories of that saga is for another time.
After a year at Bumi Hills, we moved to operate a fishing and diving resort on a small island, Ilha Magaruque, in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Mozambique.
I moved back to New York City after 5 years in Africa and honed my computer design skills and started working again. After 5 years in Africa, I decided I needed more quiet for my art so I moved to the woods of Pennsylvania. I continue to design logos and marketing materials and websites for various clients all over the US.
Recently, I joined a metaphysical group in NJ (Trinity Metaphysical Center) and became a paranormal investigator. This has been so much fun and so satisfying to my soul. I feel like I am entering a new dimension of my life. I have a room full of new canvases and paints and have started again documenting what I see in my mind's eye.
My latest work is digitally enhanced motorcycle photographs that I took awhile back. The last two images are those pieces.
