Wayfarer Series

Wayfarer is a collection of abstracts and representational works inspired by all my travel. My time in Ireland, England, Italy, Budapest and France have all contributed in some way to what I long to paint from the memories. I have recently painted from a more narrow focus of a closer place that means a lot to me. That place is Monterey, California. I have been going there since I was born with my family. My paternal Grandparents met there and my Parents were married there. I married my husband there too. This series of paintings comes from my love to move and see new places. To taste new foods and notice new smells all in a different atmosphere. It has the feels of my appreciation for the beauty of these locations and the thought that I belonged there. My Mother used to say when we were on holiday "while I am here, I am home". I like to think that way too.
