 "If you have anything really valuable to contribute to the world it will come through the expression of your own personality, that single spark of divinity that sets you off and makes you different from every other living creature." (Bruce Barton)


     I am a landscape/nature artist.  I favor the rich quality of oil as my medium to convey the beauty and serenity I feel from nature in my  plein air and studio paintings.  Wherever I am in the natural world, beauty will reveal itself in the light, color and movement of the subjects that I paint.  It inspires me to take out my brush and palette to create a pictorial story to share with others.
     Ever since I was a child, I loved to draw.   My love of nature developed through the many camping trips I went on with  my family. Thus, I find myself drawn to the vast subject matter that nature provides.  As a young adult I studied under a professional wildlife artist and have since taken professional classes and workshops.   I believe painting is a lifelong learning experience.
    My paintings are a compilation of different places and mood that I have experienced. Oftentimes, I'm told by observers of my work that they feel like they are there, looking out the window at the scene before them.  While I admire the works of many artists, such as Thomas Moran, Carl Rungis and Albert Bierstadt, the greatist artist to inspire me, is our creator, whose work constantly fills our world with beauty and wonder.  It is with this feeling that I am driven to paint.
