How do you capture a moment in time -- light, color, shadows? How do you express the fragrance of a blooming garden, summer heat on the water, cold crispness of a winter morning? I use my art to tell a story and to capture these unique moments. I paint memories, wonderful images that have left me with a sense of beauty, serenity and delight.
I paint because I love to and because I feel I must share a story of what I see. Sharing my work with my viewers and collectors is part of the process . This is what continues to lead me on the journey of my creative life.
