I have had creative energy all of my life and have expressed it in many different venues. I grew up in the San Francisco Bay area but it was after living on the beautiful island of Kauai for a couple of years that I was inspired to start painting. Kauai, the island, the people, the lifestyle changed me forever. I took a few private art lessons and was told by my instructor to 'just keep painting' and so I have. I am proud to be a self-taught artist--I have developed my own personal style and technique, painting primarily with oils and acrylics.
I enjoy creating stories with my art and use lots of color and realistic detail. My objective is to be expressive and have fun! If someone else can connect with my art and appreciate it, that makes it all the better.
