I discovered my love of painting after a 28 year career in interior design.  My love of color, texture and proportions carried over to the skills required to describe the actual world onto a flat canvas.  And it has been the "actual world" that fuels my inspiration both outdoors and indoors.
Capturing the quality of light, its play on surfaces and how it affects color is a magical moment.  Add the sounds, fragrances, solitude, directness and painting outdoors becomes addictive.  It is almost like an insatiable hunger to swallow the beauty I often see in the most simple views.  Too often I have had to pull off to the side of the road to take a picture or make a quick sketch.
I have been fortunate to have studied with some wonderful teachers through classes and workshops, always striving to improve and loving the process.
