I cannot remember a day without the heart, soul and thoughts of an artist.

It is a privilege, an honor and a gift to work as an artist.  It is a passionate path that we follow with each painting and stroke of the brush as we conceive and create our vision of life.  As a plein air painter, studio artist and fine art educator, I enjoy painting the spontaneous and sensual energy of life.

I embrace the deep focus that it takes an image to reach the artist perfection. I love the moments when all the elements meet and the beauty of art flows from the soul to the brush and finally to the canvas. It is the painter’s language of life, spoken through a dedication of passionate curiosity.
