Welcome to my web site. I work from photos, still life set ups, and live models.
I strive to paint unique and intense emotional pictures.
Quite often I think about how we take for granted the things we see all the time, and forget how beautiful and precious life really is. A painting can stop the clock and show a moment in time that may be missed in our fast paced lives, which is one of the reasons why I decided it was important to sell copies of my art work so that others can enjoy it as well.
I believe that a painting portrays depth and feeling.
Painting has truly taught me to be able to see things I had never opened my eyes to before. It's amazing how the world is all made up of shapes, and shapes within shapes. I concentrate a lot on shapes and values when I paint, and not what I'm painting, which allows me to paint anything I want, because I don't carry the fear about what I'm painting.
I try to stay very dedicated to my art, and have spent countless hours in workshops and painting classes always pushing myself to never stop learning and growing as an artist.
I absolutely love to draw and paint. Instructing is also very rewarding and beneficial to me. When I am passing on my knowledge about art, it gives me a great feeling especially to see the reward it gives others. Seeing them smile when they look at what they have accomplished is very rewarding as an instructor.
I'm extremely grateful for my present and past instructors Gene Prokop, Ann Waeland, and Loriane Ure for all their support, encouragement, inspiration, and knowledge given to me, and of course my family and friends.
