FIND THE WINE:
I am a Contemporary Artist from Napa Valley, California, now living in Lake Garda, Italy with my husband, a winemaker of amphora, natural wines, from Verona, where we just married in August 2018. I graduated with my BFA in Fine Art Painting from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco in 2005. My abstract paintings are interpretations of taste onto canvas.
In Napa Valley, I became established as an abstract action painter where I paint LIVE during food and wine events, magazine parties as well as at large public events like Napa Valley Film Festival, BottleRock and Yountville LIVE, where I interpret the taste of wine onto canvas alongside sipping guests during the party.
Here in Italy, the presentation format of my Palette of the Palate Collection is a series of curated “Art of Taste” events: sensory exhibitions where I work alongside chefs, winemakers and musicians in collaboration to further express our perception of taste as dynamic and all encompassing.
Using my Synesthesia “superpower” I curate and transform the “Art of Taste” from oil on canvas into enveloping and immersive sensory gastronomic experiences.
What would a lemon say if it only had a paint brush? Within this setting, where the painting is created live, my oil paintings become tangible expressions; commemorating flavor. Through my art and these creative collaborations, I explore Italian wines, terroir and culture to expand my body of work and share the experience of taste; invigorating a fresh avant-garde artistic dialogue altogether.
