Dancing Through Life
A celebration of the body in motion.

Joie de Vivre  (2005)
(48 x 60: Oil)

I remember as a very young child when I went to the beach for the first time. I  squealed for joy for over an hour as I ran and splashed in the waves. Too often, as we grow older, we lose that "joie de vivre." I love the blue of the ocean, the blue of the sky, and the beauty of the female form; combining the three helped express the carefree joy of "letting loose." This is one of  my favorites; it has a strong sense of texture, including thick clouds, and waves that are literally cut into the paint.

A Meditation on Transcending Duality (2006) 
(24x36:Cut Paper and Acrylic)

This piece reflects the merging of two artistic interests: Matisse's cut-outs and my fascination with bodies in motion, particularly female dancers. In 2009, it was displayed at Ico Gallery in New York as part of their "Rhythmic Figure" exhibit.

Sway (2006)

Part of the process of discovering the line and form is via sketching. This was the sketch that launched the line of cut-outs on the "Sway" motif.
