My IDOL WORSHIP series is dedicated to superstars, icons and special individuals who have inspired me. Public figures who have changed my reality by showing me perspectives which I never dreamt possible. Visit the "price list" below for the availability and pricing of these fine art paintings. I will be adding more as I finish them.
My philosophy for this new series is that art should contain a mystery to be unraveled that takes the viewer to a new place or a new way of seeing. You can catch glimpses of divine imagination, inner self-portraiture, studies in physics and sacred geometry. Some are my dreams, some are mystical visions... and others are mysteries that continue to intrigued me. Visit the "price list" below for the availability and pricing of these fine art paintings.

This is a mini-series that was painted in 2007 while I was living in New Orleans' French Quarter. These tiny (8" x 10") painted sketches were inspired by New Orleans imagery. Acrylic on canvas. Limited edition giclee prints on canvas are available.
My series of Pin-Up Girls, which were painted from 1996-2008, strives to immortalize my bevy of beautiful friends. For many years, I was an avid night crawler and face on the New York City nightlife scene. I had been moonlighting as a cigarette girl and go-go dancer in the city's hottest night spots. This introduced me to some of the most stunning starlets on the downtown scene. I felt they were goddesses who should be immortalized and began featuring my friends as the models in my paintings. I found these women to be confident, intelligent individuals; empowered by their femininity and sensuality. I have been influenced by a variety of imagery spanning many decades. In my Pin Up Art you'll catch glimpses of sophisticated style from the 1920s and 30s, the Pin-Up theme of the 40s and 50s and a Pop Art sensibility from the 60s. There's a natural, open sensuality from the 1970s and campy glamour of the 1980s. You'll also find references to the 90s retro-lounge scene in NYC, and a modern, yet timeless, sense of humor.
These 21 paintings are acrylic on canvas. A few are still available for purchase. Custom portraits are available by commission. For purchasing information, visit the "price list" below. Limited edition giclee prints on canvas are also available in my ETSY SHOP.
Paintings from 1986 to 1990.... I still have to dig some out.
