Welcome to the BLACK & WHITE COLLECTION. During this challenging time of living through a pandemic, I found my creativity evaporating – it's hard to be inspired during such difficult times. But I created a project for myself: I would create a wall mural consisting of 12 - 16 individual black and white paintings. Each one created as time and mood permitted. I also challenged myself to use only black and white paint to see what I could create using only these 2 colors.
So far, it's fun and interesting…

Combining the energy and motion of the sea with a sky filled with color and movement and more energy always excites me. Living in a city, we don’t often get to enjoy the visual of a wide expanse of water or sky for that matter so I always enjoying painting my own view. I always see paintings as windows we can hang on our walls. And through those ‘windows’, we can look and see a place that is not where we are. I enjoy creating windows where my mind and imagination can go to play…
