Biography


 
What I enjoy most about painting is composing the way light plays on the subject matter.  Through alla prima painting, the process of starting and finishing a painting in one session, I trust my intuition and express what is essential to me about the subject.  I strive to keep my brush work bold, loose, and spontaneous and often use a palette knife to apply paint and create texture.  I am grateful for a talented community of artists whose work inspires me and allows me a wealth of opportunity to learn and grow.  It is this inspiration and the encouragement of others along the way that keeps me returning to my canvas.
