Creating art is a very personal journey. It is my way of expressing and appreciating the beauty that surrounds me.
I have a great love for painting in oils. I love the smell of fresh oil paint and how it feels as it glides over my canvas. My studio beckons me when I wake up in the morning. It reminds me of what Picasso said...Painting is stronger than me, it makes me do its bidding.
Inspiration, I believe, are gifts bestowed upon us from the Powers that Be.
A new canvas excites me and intimidates me at the same time. Light and the way it affects color, is my daily obsession.
Every time I pick up my paintbrush, I learn something new.
For the Viewer, I wish to give you a sense of peace, harmony and light.
My greatest influence and teachers are artists I admire and their work I study on a regular basis. I love John Singer Sargent for loose contemporary style. His work has always inspired me.
