My paintings are layers of geometric patterns, stripes and schmears of vivid colors. The built up layers eventually quiet down to create more minimal and subtle paintings. Recently, textile designs by Native American Indians and Bauhaus master Gunta Stolzl have served as spring boards for new paintings. The emphasis is on materials, process and pure visual pleasure. Each painting begins with general motifs and colors in mind but are never fully planned. It’s only through trail and error that the paintings slowly evolve into their own.

Presenting my photographs at Secret City was outstanding and refreshing. The overall experience was so… enriching.  It was like a soul recharge in a hectic city crowded with lots of people trying to achieve big dreams but not always connecting in open creative ways.  Secret City creates an environment of connection, unity, and enormous JOY. I just felt so great being there and absorbing Chris’ amazing energy as he danced and read and was fabulous. I absolutely loved the reading of the quotes from people’s dream intentions! Plus the singers!

What I like about showing my work from Remnants: After The Storm, was how open people were with their questions. They had excellent insights and questions that created a really dynamic engaging dialogue.
Overall, I would recommend Secret City to anyone who feels like they need more creative connection in their life while surviving the big apple! As a Life-Coach for creative individuals, I know we all need to have personal connection, not just online social “connecting”. Secret City provides this to like-minded people. It’s a place where one can open up, share, receive, and get a soul recharge!
