“A fine work of art – music, dance, painting, story – has the power to
silence the chatter in the mind and lift us to another place”
I’ve always considered myself to be an artist, though life often gets in the way of being a productive artist. Finally, I feel I am able to devote time to my painting, to truly nurture my soul, reflect on all the beauty that surrounds us and leave some impression behind.
I am inspired by quiet moments of reflection and the ability to notice the light and the subtle details in nature, objects, people and animals. I like the quiet stillness of a painting. Our world moves faster and faster all the time. I want to slow things down, to no longer have to rush.
I work in both oils and acrylics, as well as colored pencils and pastels, ink and charcoal. I have a meaningful personal connection with each painting I do and then, like a proud parent, I want to share it with the world.
