My art is about sharing my passion for life. We live in a fast-paced world, and I believe that my work captures special moments that encourage viewers to take a breath, pause and reflect…a palette of life captured in a fleeting moment.
Sunlight and elongated shadows have become my signature style. I have always been fascinated by the sunlight's power as it gently moves over objects. The play of light on a subject can transform ordinary objects into stunning images. My goal is to create a unity between the objects, the light, and the viewer.
As a child, my favorite time of day was when I was allowed to draw and paint. As I got older, my affection for art continued and I secured a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in graphic design from East Tennessee State University. I pursued a career in graphic arts for years and painted with acrylics and oils, until I discovered my love for watercolors. As a young mother, I was fortunate to be able to stay home and paint. I remember putting my 2 small children to bed, then staying up to 2:00am, lost in my art. I am forever grateful to have been given this gift of creativity.
Art is a unique blend of skill, emotion, culture and imagination! I grew up in West Virginia with my very Italian family, and spent beautiful summers in Sant’Andrea, Ionio Italy with my relatives. The images in my paintings are all from my own experiences and travels. I have a studio presently in Reno, Nevada. Having acquired an American/Italian dual citizenship, I plan to make many trips to paint abroad in my little place in Italy where my grandparent’s raised my mom and her four siblings.
