Edward Hopper said it best: “If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint”
I am driven to and inspired by nature and see beauty in the everyday, whether it’s a slice of cake or a serene sunset.
Joy is in the process …experimenting with different mediums and methods that push me out of my “comfort zone” in an ever-evolving endeavor to create harmony, balance, joy, and sometimes surprise. From still life oil paintings to chalk pastels and acrylics, my work has taken new paths, twists, and turns…and I’m having fun in the process.
I aim to capture the feelings that nature inspires (peace, serenity, joy, surprise, wonder, awe) through experimenting with color, mixed media, and new textures that often take me to unexpected places.
