Movement, color & whimsy Movement, color & whimsy! For over 14 years, Darlene has used these three components to capture any subject she paints. Growing up in the age of television, Darlene uses the influence of animated cartooning in her work. Through stylized human forms and expressive colors, her work contains a mixture of humor and positive images, bringing them to life. Bright, acrylic brush strokes and strong, stated lines harmonize to create a finished work that is flavorful.

Her work currently hangs in the homes, businesses and work places of people spanning from California to New York. Her work has recently hung in formal and unconventional galleries in New Orleans, Memphis and Cordova. It currently hangs in a gallery in Oklahoma.
She has illustrated for the Wall Street Journal and other magazines. She has also illustrated two children’s books and has been commissioned for murals in homes and businesses across the tri-state area. She has been listed as one of today’s hottest artists by Visions Fine Art Magazine, a U.S. and Canadian art publication.
