About Me

The throwing and splashing
of paint occurs here! 

My creative thoughts are not always free and I do not always feel like painting.  The discipline of just walking into my studio daily, almost always ends up in peace and with a new direction of how I want to tackle a painting.  

I welcome failure as I travel through a painting, knowing there is much exploration ahead of me and always new lessons to learn.  I believe in a fearless approach to my canvas, along with the ability to get out of my comfort zone.  As I strive to stretch myself into new aspects of my paintings, I feel as if I am for a few moments, “on vacation.”  

I am often absorbed with the beauty of a portrait that takes on a representational feel, but on any given day, my brain says it is time for a wild and crazy abstract!  I am a true contemporary impressionist, who likes to “shake things up” once and a while.

Thank you.
