My reason for being a painter comes down to a few basics: My love of nature, the positive beautiful glimpses of life which surround us, and wanting to share these personal perceptions and joy with the viewer. I find my greatest fulfillment when my art has touched a person's heart. I wish my collectors to delight in their paintings and to enjoy my own personal vision & interpretation of what I have viewed in the wonderful world around us.
