I paint with my hands (similar to what we all did as children...finger painting). It is a form of creative spiritual meditation where I allow the paintings to almost create themselves. Magic seems to happen once I pour the paint on the canvas and let my hands be guided to whatever wants to be created. Since I\\\'m also a Massage Therapist, using my hands to paint is so natural for me. I love feeling the smooth coolness of the paint as I am spreading it on the pliable canvas. I get lost in the freedom and dance of this process. People tell me they feel deep relaxation and lose track of time while viewing the paintings....just like my clients say after a massage! I am fortunate to live in Maine, where every day I am inspired by nature - the ocean, sky, clouds and sunsets deeply influence my paintings.
