I am an artist in awe of Godís creation. My domestic and international travels offer experiences, characters, lessons, and vistas to play with in my mind until I create my version of the memory on canvas or paper. While traveling, I combine plein aire drawing & sketching with photo documentation to be used later in my studio.
I work predominately with oil pastels and oil paints on paper, board and canvas. I love the freedom of abstracting details and allowing the viewer to participate in the creation of a scene.
I paint landscapes in oil and oil pastel. Many of my pieces are inspired by my love of Italy and specifically the magnificent cypress trees that grow there.
