Paintings have always intrigued me and in my youth I
became interested in the painting and drawing process. After art
classes in college, I found some very capable instructors to further
my studies. A judge once commented on one of my paintings, "I can
hear the music." That had greater meaning than the award since my
desire is to involve the viewer in the painting. Whether painting in
oils, watercolor, pastels, or acrylic my landscapes, garden scenes,
or still life reflect my interpretation of that moment.
Travel throughout the U.S. and living in Europe for three years
has afforded me the opportunity to gather information and, through
my paintings, to help others see and appreciate the wonders God has
provided for us.
