I am happy to share with you my enthusiasm for painting working in  watercolor and oil .  I am always emotionally inspired by what is around me, traveling is a big part of what I love.  Capturing that experience on location or in my studio.  Focusing on the light and mood that will engage the viewer.  Painting on location gives me not only how i t looks but the way it feels.  Love for a challenge takes me from figurative to landscape or any other subject, always keeping my brushwork soulful and impressionistic.

 

My quest is to create paintings that change the world in how they will view the subject I paint. To make life more dignified and more artfully beautiful.
