The Artist


My paintings reflect important moments in my life and the individuals and places that made these moments powerful. My subjects include people near and dear to me, the rolling hills through which I have walked, and the waterways on which I have traveled. The painting process rekindles their connection to me. I am inspired by this emotional impact and the light in each of these settings -- which are captured by enthusiastic brushstrokes and passion.
