Artist Statement

Art and color have always been a part of my life. I was taken to art classes at the museum at the age of six and that’s where it all began. My interest in art pulled me into a world of creativity, imagination, color and inner peace. I couldn’t consume enough of it.

Through the years of watercolor painting, oils, mixed media, pottery, commercial art, everything intertwined with one another. I wanted to involve myself with something new.

I am self-taught in this medium of Funky Furniture and Home Accessories. I wanted to bring my creativity and imagination to a form of new and discarded pieces and bring them to life with color and function.

When I see a piece that inspires me, I then visualize what I could create with it. It is then taken to the studio where the work begins. The sanding, priming, painting and creating a piece that brings out a conversation with splashes of color and truly has a function.

There are no two pieces that are alike; some are similar, but they are truly one of a kind. Each piece has color form and function. Whether they are chairs, stools, tables, benches, wooden plates, picture frames, mirrors or jewelry boxes, it brings life into a room and inspires conversation.

All pieces are hand painted with Acrylic paints and have either three or four coats of Acrylic or Lacquer for protection. Some pieces have an added surprise of texture with decoupage. I have tremendously enjoyed creating pieces and hope you will enjoy them as well for years to come.
