ARTIST STATEMENTFrom my earliest memories I have wanted to capture  the world I love through art. I completed my first oil painting at age 9. I did my first large scale mural in the first grade  on one of the outside slate walls of the school. I had to stay after school to erase it! Later in life I experimented with many art forms. I appreciate all  mediums, but  primarily I remain a painter with oil being my greatest pleasure. I like the flow and permanence of it. I love painting on a grand scale, large  walls are freeing. For my mural work I want to bring the outside in, especially for those who cannot get out there.
