  • My Subjects

    A Journey

    Landscapes, especially beautiful sunsets, gardens, rivers, lakes, water lilies - anything that takes one on a journey into their inner selves are subjects that I love to paint.­­­

  • Telling a story

    Expressing my love

    I believe I am telling stories as I paint and expressing my love of beauty, of nature, of people or animals as the case may be. Sometimes my mind goes off to a different plane and I am totally lost in my work, spending hours without realizing any time has passed. I am happiest and most productive at this time.

  • Experiences and feelings in paint

    It is about seeing

    My work is about seeing. It is about moods or feelings created within me as I am painting and within the viewer while looking at these works. The way light falls across forms is sometimes enough to capture my attention and make me want to express my experiences or feelings in paint.

Artist’s Statement:

Express my experiences

My work is about seeing - about light and the way it falls across forms. It is about moods or feelings created within me as I am painting and within the viewer while looking at these works. I believe I am telling stories as I paint and expressing my love of beauty, of nature, of people or animals as the case may be. Sometimes my mind goes off to a different plane and I am totally lost in my work, spending hours without realizing any time has passed. I am happiest and most productive at this time.

Landscapes, especially beautiful sunsets, gardens, rivers, lakes, water lilies - anything that takes one on a journey into their inner selves are subjects that I love to paint.­­­ Even the way light falls across forms is sometimes enough to capture my attention and make me want to express my experiences or feelings in pain.
