The more I paint the more I see interesting shapes, become more sensitive to color and feel a visceral reaction to texture.
My muse can be any subject but design holds the Visual Kiss for me. The "Visual Kiss" is a term used to describe what draws an artist to paint a particular subject. For me, it is also the emotional response I have for something. It is the wow or what factor that  for me is sometimes bold , sometimes  soft and atmospheric  but always interesting and beautiful . My paintings from life or from photos always begin in my sketchbook where the design is worked out. Working from life is also an important part of my work whether that is working Plein Air or working from a model. My studio work is from studies done on site or from photos worked on in my sketchbook. I am lucky to have studios in both Chicago and Traverse City, Michigan.
