Each one of my paintings represents a visual diary or journal. Whether traveling or taking a daily walk around my property, I strive to capture the pure essence of my subject by using light, luminous color and brushstrokes that suggest form and mass. I'm inspired by the beauty of nature and the written word. You'll often find lines of poetry or song lyrics scattered throughout my paintings. This poetic realistic approach helps my viewers connect and relate in a very personal way. Using humor, beauty and grace, I write a story with each one of my pieces.
