Art is my way to reconnect to the solitude  and beauty of the nature that surrounded me as a child. That emotional connection is there with every painting I do.

I want to share that with others.  It is so beautiful to look at a painting and feel so connected to the energy that lives within it. The presence can be so strong it can move you to laugher or even to tears.

My work is about bringing positive energy.  To share my joy, my gratitude, and a sense of the peace we all need more of in our lives.

Art is so much more than just a pretty picture.  Art is an emotion, a message, a dialog with the viewer. A Painting can go beyond surface beauty and take you to a memory,  a fantasy, or a dream!

I love BOLD BRUSHWORK and STRONG TEXTURES in my painting because they can be so expressive of the mood that I am trying to convey.The vibrations of energy in my work are the ultimate purpose behind my art.  An emotional connection that can touch you each time you look at it.

My Purpose

I have been studying art my whole life. There has never been a time in my memory when communicating through my art was not important to

For over 30 years I dedicated my time in my career to restoring and conserving other's art treasures.  It was a very rewarding career, but now it is my time to share my own voice in my art.
