After a successful careen in Interior Design and after retiring in 2008 , I have become a full time artist.
My passion for form and color led me to a unique artistic expression. With my keen design eye, I constantly formulate ideas inspired by urban imagery, nature and architecture. My fascination with the reflective nature of building exteriors and my love of form and color as seen through glass facades is captured with my IPhone and then transfer them to my canvas.
I find delight in the rhythms of urban landscape which reminds me of its beauty.
