The Artist Says:

I love painting in oil whether it is in the studio and outside.  The more I learn about painting techniques the more I try them and grow as an artists.  I see beauty in most things.

As an artist, I look at my surrounding world uniquely. I see a beautiful landscape as colors and shadows. I remember years ago as a flight attendant spending some of my free time looking out the windows and being in awe of the cloud formations, or in wonder of the alps, or amazed at seeing Aurora Borealis from the sky. Years later I am trying to capture the beauty from my memories and as I see it now. I want to share my view of the world with others through my paintings.
