I live on an island on Florida's east coast near the small town of Fort Pierce. We are one of the last really laid back small coastal towns left in Florida. There are wonderful little wilderness pockets tucked away all over our area. I love spending time in these areas with my plein air painting group, taking in the colors, smells and sounds of what is left of “Old Florida.” These natural experiences infuse my abstract work once I’m back in my studio. Any and all shades of blue and green make me salivate! All of these elements, especially the Caribbean-colored waters surrounding our island, find their way into my abstract acrylic and abstract oil and cold wax paintings.
