Since architecture can be very exacting - I tend to gravitate to an interpretational and expressionistic style to my paintings -- I love the use of bold color and reflective light. I strive to capture the mood and energy of the subject by reflecting the feel of the moment with quick initial paintings.”Colorado’s built environment and natural landscape is an inspiration for both her art and architecture work.
