The Artist Says:

I believe viewers finish  a painting using their intelligence, experience, beliefs and emotion.


An artist speaks from personal experiences, knowledge, and beliefs and rarely gets to "see" the finished piece. The work is completed by the viewer's own imagination and intelligence.

A native Texan with an Associates Fine Art degree, I have painted full-time since 1999. Day-to-day, my focus is faith, family, friends and fine art.  I am hooked on the process of trying to place my vision of something on canvas. I want to help viewers see things in a new way. Seeing through an artist’s eye is thrilling beyond words. What a gift that is. Here's an example of why I paint. In Rockport TX, I was with a group of  artists painting in a boat yard. One of the workers stopped by to watch. He said, " I never knew it was beautiful."  I hope my paintings change the way people understand their world. 
Wherever I am, I prefer to paint from life and I am inspired by painting outside (plein aire) or interiors/still life inside (or in the back yard). My style might be called painterly realism. A love for travel has taken me to wonderful locations—domestic and foreign--to paint and I have a treasure of reference photos from those trips.
Workshop teachers who have influenced me include: Ann Templeton, Gay Faulkenberry, Quang Ho, Scott Burdick, Ray Vinella, and Dick Turner. The legacies of Chase, Sargent, Sorolla, Bongart, Fechin, and scores of others live and inspire through images and written word. I am a member of the following: Outdoor Painters Society, American Impressionist Society, Houston Plein Air Painters, Bay Area Painters, Galveston Art League.

Painting is not a static discipline. It involves constantly growing and maturing.
