I am a city girl and have long been inspired by the action and energy of cities throughout the world. I paint "Slice of Life" scenes... the ordinary things in life. I strive to find the beauty in everyday scenes, everyday actions, everyday items. It is through the ordinary that I express the unusual. I am not drawn to scenes that everyone sees as beautiful and eye catching. I want my viewers to see that, if you look closely at all things, therein lie the colors, expressions and movements that are beautiful, even extraordinary.
