Every day that I can paint is a happy day! I am an enthusiastic artist; it's a daily part of my life. I'm preparing in my mind for the next artwork even when I'm not painting.


My subject matter is a mixture of interests from landscapes and seascapes to flowers, birds, and abstracts. I paint what I feel I am connected to. There is usually a story behind the piece, a place a feeling, an urge to see what happens with the brushes or pastels. I like to make the color and light pop from the canvas or paper.  


As Vincent Van Gogh said, "If you hear a voice within you say, you are not a painter, then by all means paint...and that voice will be silenced."
