The Artist Says:

Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.


People tell me my paintings are like poetry for the eyes. My paintings evoke a mood, so that viewers are reminded of their own memories, nostalgia or dreams.
For the past 40 years I've been painting the sights, places, florals and naturescapes of Southwest Washington State. There's a lot of water, boats, trees, sky and green colors where I live. It's a place where I never fail to find artistic inspiration. 
Walks with my dogs along the Columbia River, trips across the state to wine country, hikes into Mount St. Helens and Mount Rainier, are just a few of my favorite landscape inspirations. I've also painted the human figure; finding beauty in the shapes and curves of our human form.
My work is done mainly with oil paints using many layers of transparent and opaque colors. I add and subtract colors, scraping and blending until I develop a sense of ethereal realism that depicts the subject in a painterly way.  I want the viewer to connect with my work, and allow themselves to be drawn into my paintings.
