User StatementMy paintings are primarily created from my photos and some from Plein air. Many places have brought me great joy and memories of personal exploration of beaches, hikes in forests, and exploring landscapes, cityscapes, flora, and wildlife. I spend hours carefully creating compositions of expressive images. My paintings tend to lean towards a painterly fashion with an impressionistic flair. I love creating pieces that draw attention and imagination to tell a story. I have been honored to show my work in local, national, and international juried shows, earning a few reward recognitions to boot! My greatest reward, of course, is when others find pleasure in my work. It’s most gratifying when someone appreciates my art enough to want to hang it in their home.
