Artist's Statement

  

 The beauty of the ordinary is what I try to capture in my paintings. We are surrounded by unlimited opportunities to share with others the unique qualities of color, light and form that are part of our everyday lives. Too often we overlook the simple beauty of God's creations or pass them by.
 
     "...I work from life, and I want viewers to feel like they're seeing what I'm seeing--on that day, in that place, in that way."
