It is my calling to see beauty in common places and capture the scene.  I paint to show my appreciation of what God created and share what He put in my heart.  Everyday things that usually would not get a second glance can become beautiful works of art.  There is a message in every scene, whether it is a location, personal belonging, or building.  There are so many beautiful subjects that should have its place on my canvas or any other painting surface.  My mission is to capture these hidden treasures before time erases them completely.  I am compelled to show the younger generation of how life was and raise appreciation of what is often overlooked.
My favorite subjects are rural structures in landscapes. I love learning the history about my subject and gain the appreciation that helps me create meaningful art.
