I create realistic oil paintings, often with a touch of whimsy. My paintings make me smile and remind me daily that life is good and I am ok. 8 years ago I started my art journey as a form of vision therapy following an accident. I was not artistic beyond doodling at meetings and creating ugly 80's country crafts. As life sometimes goes, I stumbled upon a hidden skill that I didn't know I had. I started painting simple everyday objects and as I created, my vision improved. My paintings are colorful, often humorous, evoke feelings and memories, and allow me to share my positive vibe with others.
