"Brushing strokes of energy on canvas I try to express the innate beauty of nature. Whether I am exploring the abstract possibilities of paint,  inebriated by the colors found while painting outdoors or adhering directly to my studio set up, one things remains constant ~ I become mesmerized by the beauty of light. Painting is not just my passion but my addiction. 
It is my intent to create serene but compelling images evoking what I feel at that moment ~ letting emotion guide my work.
Painting makes me a better person but it is my hope that my artwork spreads joy to the viewer."
