Artist Bio

I have always been an artist.  For as long as I can remember I have loved creating art  from crayons to oil paints.   My passion is Plein Air painting.  When I am painting everything ceases to exist except the process.   The paintings I love the most   “choose me”.  Whether it’s a color, shape value or subject – something stops me and says paint this.  The part I enjoy the most is transferring what is in my mind’s eye onto the canvas and relate it to the viewer.

Color is magic for me.   I struggle sometime to keep it from exploding in the painting but yet resemble the subject I was attracted too.  Most importantly, painting is a healing process for me.  I have heard many artists say: Art heals me one picture at a time and this is true for me too.  It gives an outlet to the negativity and replaces it with a feeling of goodness again.
