This new series of abstract paintings are bold expressions of women. A personal tribute to my four sisters and the feminist mother who raised us, the exhibition also celebrates the lives and hopes of all women – my sisters in the broader sense. These colorful, upbeat pieces imagine women and girls of various ages, shapes, sizes, and attitudes. Some suggest the long road of the women’s movement, while others reflect the optimism I feel about the vibrant young women leading the charge now. Throughout all runs a current of strength and perseverance, binding us together, pushing us ever forward.

The Pink Wave series celebrates the record numbers of women moving into positions of power and influence. These abstract painted waves, infused with the energy of hot pinks and oranges, imagine unstoppable movement.

I now offer framed prints and mugs of my Pink Wave paintings.


This recent abstract series reflects my concern about the deep divides in our country. Compelling and timely, these paintings are visual interpretations of our current fractured political climate as well as our shared aspirations for our democracy.

These paintings are an expression of my daily streams of thought and reflect a myriad of longings and recollections, but also unexpected joys and challenges. When grouped together, a view of life unfolds: messy, joyful, bright and boggling.

Every fall, I paint a small number of doves in memory of my father. A lawyer and civil rights activist, Dad worked at the grassroots level to advance peaceful solutions to legal and social injustices of the time.

These paintings focus on the familiar but unsettling turning points in our lives, moments of choice, chance and possibility.
