It was grey and industrial with alot of falling down parts.   In Kinvara, the limestone rocks of the Burren are out the front door and the sea is out the back and the wind hustles its way through every crack. 

Color, Colour, Color...Intense, reSounding energy called color is her offering. The spices are texture and different media like digital images or plastic spoons.  She  meditates and teaches yoga and plays a bit of piano.

 Her paintings are an extension of contemplation and deep listening.
