My first language was Danish as my parents immigrated to San Francisco after World War 2. My father, a musician, taught me how to draw, paint and play the violin. As a six year old, I remember painting San Francisco skylines and Sonoma County landscapes with layers of colors & textures...bold and fearlessly.
Today, I paint the same way but have an experienced appreciation of life's nuances with personal layers & textures to draw upon.
I'm drawn to bold, colorful and intentional
Abstract compositions, incorporating a blend of both architectural lines and whimsical elements creating movement.
I want the observer to feel what I feel when painting....joy, curiosity, optimism and carefree experimentation.
