Being creative has always been a part of my life. Different mediums, subjects, places, people and events continually shape me as an artist and give me inspiration. My passion is Plein Air painting. Living in Southern Utah provides a lifetime of subjects that are irresistible to my desire to paint The paintings I love the most “choose me”.
Whether it’s a color, shape value or subject – my inner muse stops me and says “paint this”. My goal is to communicate with the viewer the joy I see around me. Listening to each painting to understand, finding what it’s secret is to be shown, gives me a lifelong journey of exploring.
Painting also heals me, one picture at a time. It gives an outlet to the uncertainty of the day and replaces it with a feeling of hope and goodness again. I look forward to this period of renewal every time I paint.
