“I have always loved art and music. My father was both a musician and artist and he showed me the joy of having a creative spirit. I began painting plein air and selling my work in the 1980’s. I studied as I painted and I was drawn by the work of the impressionists.
I studied VanGogh by traveling to view his work in museums in Holland and France. People often say they see that influence when the view my work. I love the nontraditional use of color. I often paint straight from the tube using a palette knife, as did he.
Today I understand that my artwork is an intimate reflection of my life’s journey. Each piece of art marks a moment in time along my path. It is very personal. I love making that special connection with people when they enjoy a specific piece of my art.”
