Yoga saved my life. After an injury in 2008 and unsuccessful back surgery I was in pain and side-lined for two years. Thanks to the great training I received from my first yoga instructor, Anna Lee Sanders, and all the wonderful teachers since, I live a full active life. This series of paintings shows my great love and respect for the practice. I hope that viewers can feel that love and connect with the spiritual and physical aspects of yoga. Thank you to my wonderful models, Karen Burnett and Shelby Grant, of Yoga Palm Beach. More paintings are in the works. The acrylic on canvas pieces are approximately 28″ x 24″, $1,080.
My deep spiritual connection to the yoga practice set me on the course for creating the yoga icons. The pieces are digitally painted images that are printed on canvas or paper then hand painted. This spiritually motivated series resists the confines of framed canvas and is hung like a classic Asian scroll. Prices range from $162 for smaller pieces (approx. 12″ x 16″) to $540 for larger ones (approx. 27″ W x 47″ H). Please click here to order your customized artwork.
Flight at Dawn, Gulls-Orange Feet and Gulls-Conversation were inspired by sea gulls flying close to the Singer Island Beach, Florida and Newburyport Massachusetts..

Blue Heron, Anhinga and Grassy Waters are mixed media paintings that work as a triptych. They were created to hang in a collator’s private home and overlook the Blue Heron’s and Anhinga’s natural habitat.
The water lily painting was inspired by a small pond with waterlilies at Zichron-Yachov Park in Israel. The day I visited the park the sun was strong causing high white highlights on the lily pads and the water to appear nearly black in certain areas. The high contrast is what attracted me to this scene. The 40″ x 30″ painting is acrylic on canvas, $1100.
The Lupin are small green plants with blue flowers. The rare Karner Blue Butterfly can be found in fields of Lupin. Every morning dew drops settle into the center of each plant. The painting is 36” x 24” acrylic on canvas. Painted as a part of my Artist in residence experience at Necedah National Wildlife Refuge in the summer of 2010. $950
The Keepsake Series grew from my love of utilitarian objects. I am fascinated by simple tools and their ability to create. There is great beauty in the humble, worn chair backs and tool handles that I paint. These items have served generations and I feel privileged to be able to paint them.
