The Artist Says:


I paint because it is a passion of mine, to give dimension to a blank canvas. Always striving to convey what I see, learning to see...really see, analyzing how light falls on an object, the rendering of light and movement in a painting through value, temperature, line, shapes. 

Other Artists Say:

Without passion, all the skill in the world won't lift you above craft. Without skill, all the passion in the world will leave you eager but floundering. Combining the two is the essence of the creative life. (Twyla Tharp)

“My work is traditionally representational. My love of people leads me to strive to convey their character, through their mannerisms or expressions. My love of travel and being out of doors, leads me to paint in plein air where I am striving to capture the changing light, and movement.  My love of composing leads me to setting up a still life to paint a setting with lighting and objects that I find interesting in color and texture.”
