Have you ever danced with lemons?
Here's your opportunity, no juggling skills required.
 
This painting brings joy, laughter and warmth to your space.
I painted this in August 2020. I danced barefoot in my studio, windows open, music on high. The sun was hot, the sky was blue but our world had a buzz swirling. Layers built, texture is flip and the color lemon was always on my mind.

Obsessed with carbs? Me too!
 
Something about good Italian crusty bread. I'm Italian and I love bread. The pandemic had me baking bread. The feel of the dough, the texture it has is so satisfying.
 
I painted this in late fall 2020. I was quarantined, baking bread, raking leaves and drinking wine. Crust seemed to fit!

This painting was created in the fall of 2020. My emotions were on a short string. Coffee was flowing daily in my studio. Americans were losing faith in government. Most Americans were preoccupied by fall leaves and pumpkin spice. Yet social injustice was escalating.
Less pumpkin spice and more social justice has flashes of everyday joy with reminders of what work needs to be done.

Quarantine, Covid Pandemic and questionable government decisions: TENSION WAS HIGH!
 
This painting was created in the height of the first spike of the pandemic March 2020. I was struggling with worry, fear, anxiety and flat out anger. Quilts are a symbol of comfort. I wanted this quilt to bring some hope to our struggle.

Relive the joys of spring.
Look at that POP!
 
I painted this in the spring of 2020. Wild flowers were starting to bloom and new grass sprouting. Energy was high and tensions were insurmountable. Yet, I wanted to keep this painting upbeat while feeling puzzled by the pandemic.
 
Puzzled with a pop and some emotion to spare.

Satin, the shine of the fabric.  The texture with slight flaws.
That is just what the snow felt like the winter of 2019.
I painted Satin in the deep of winter 2019. The snow was deep and it was cold. So cold you felt your every breath deep into your belly. The light on the fresh snowfall had me captivated. Satin of winter 2019 had my heart full of imagination.

The heat of red in the fall air.
It's hard to explain.
We all love it yet change is hard.
 
Something about fall: the leaves, the cold air moving in and a new academic year. It's always a mix of emotions and many times I feel like I'm falling just like the leaves.  Falling has warmth, struggle, light and movement.

After the death of George Floyd I knew I had to find my voice.  In a video to my followers on social media I asked them to support Black Lives Matter, those standing up and to help make change. Next I asked them to send me words that followed my lead.
My canvas started with only eight words. The next day my social media blew up with followers sending me words, phases, articles, emotions and incredible conversation.  This artwork had over 100 people contributing to this conversation, one voice together.

Moss?
 
My painting studio is nestled in the woods. I love discovering nature and its inspiration. Moss, what?
 
I'm fascinated with little magical green patches that sneak between leaves, sticks and rocks. Moss brings life to all that looks dead. In this painting there is masking of layers and details of texture that bring you into the woods.

Spring fragments?
 
Yes, I was confused too. Spring usually brings florals, frosted cupcakes, sunshine and warm air. Spring 2020 brought many of those, but they were disrupted by the pandemic.
 
Pieces of springtime covid style 2020.

100
 
Celebration of 100 years of the 19th Amendment, women's right to vote. I spent much of this year researching the women's right to vote. Women from across the country gave incredible heart and tears to make this happen.
The layers of paint represent the women's suffrage. And to all the women in the 2020 elections YOU ARE MY HEROS!

The heat goes on...
 
I love music and it moves my soul daily. The beat of the drum, barefoot and paint everywhere. Labor day weekend I had a heavy heart for American workers. So I did what I do best, turned up the tunes, poured a tequila and painted. The heat goes on...
