Painting and writing are ways in which this clinician expresses herself and relaxes after a hard day's work with patients.

Title of piece: Pink Shell, Green FaceMedium: Acrylic, 50" in diameterBiographical statement: Painting and writing are ways in which I express myself and relax after a hard day's work with patients. This particular painting represents the unconscious mind and how it projects positive and negative visions into our consciousness.

These days, I paint in oil, which is much more fluid than acrylics. I am also studying at the National Academy in New York City.
