Art is my life. From the first art project I can remember (making a Christmas Nativity scene in grade school that overshadowed the resident artist) art has always been what brings me the greatest satisfaction. Without art, I am not who I am.
I primarily work in oils. Plein air work is especially appealing and challenging. Nature invokes my creative interests, providing a wealth of areas to explore and interpret. A goal is to enlighten and eclipse the objects I draw and paint, inducing moods and emotions that envelope the viewer.
Fine art influencers include Georgia O'Keefe, da Vinci, Abbey Ryan, Rembrandt and Degas. I look to their struggles and triumphs, and their unflinching persistence.
