"As a young woman in Germany, I never expected to become an artist. Coming to America, to Santa Barbara, California, I found myself in a very exciting place in time. There was a craft revival happening and I became involved in the local art scene."
"I like to use color, line, shape and texture relationships to build a multi-layered work, purposefully letting a coat underneath to show through the top layer creating depth and mystery, enticing us to imagine what cannot always be seen."
"When I paint, I’m completely in the emotional space of that theme or place or feeling."
"When I paint, it’s more of a personal journey, but in making these abstract works it’s my aim that they will ultimately enhance people's lives."
