I am inspired by the majesty of the mountains, sky, waterways, trees, birds and creatures of earth, which are all the handiwork of God. I hope I can convey this spiritual reverence in the joyful colors and form I use to express my love of nature, and in so doing bring a smile or similar joy to those who view my paintings.

I prefer to paint in a representational or realist style, but occasionally experiment in a more semi-abstract vein. For the most part, my medium of choice is acrylics for the bold and vivid colors I can achieve, but also because they are very forgiving. Plus they are quick-drying and water-based for easy clean-up.

Although I drew constantly as a child and teen, I did not have the opportunity to follow up on my artistic inclinations. It was not until almost thirty years later that I occasionally took local art classes to give myself an artistic outlet that I began to regularly express my creative side once again.

Since I do not have a formal art education, I must describe myself as self-taught, although many artists have taught me much of what I have learned. Thanks to the internet there are many opportunities to learn and grow as an artist.

Thank you for viewing my work, and I would greatly appreciate receiving your comments on my artwork so please do send me an email!
