A sunset can summon a variety of emotions and memories depending on the lighting, color, and movement of the brushstrokes. I get inspiration from the San Francisco Bay--I like to run along the shoreline at sunset. My mind is stimulated by the infinite possibilities of what I can create. I use oil paint along with brushes and palette knives. Oil paints allow me to create artwork that has vibrancy and dynamic colors. I use multiple palette knives to build depth and texture within my work. I want to create pieces that allow the viewer to escape from daily stress and concerns. The sides of this piece are finished and the work comes ready to hang.

Fun fact: some of her favorite things include chocolate, yoga, and reading.
