Artist Statement . . .

“Art for me is a creation like the birth of a child.

I like to paint people, mostly women. I like to paint people who are happy. I also like landscapes.”

Of her frequent depictions of southern France: “I think it’s like I never forgot it. It’s not that I want to go back. I had such a nice childhood. Southern France has such nice weather. It’s the warmth that I had there. I never paint snow.

The goal of my paintings is to make people feel good. When you come home tired from work, you don’t want something that will make you depressed.”
