The paintbrush is an extension of my heart, soul and spirit. It is the instrument that I use to create colorful visual adventures for my viewers and myself. My paintings are planned purposefully and executed intuitively employing the unique qualities of water-based pigments. Most works combine vibrant colors, rich textures and bold value contrasts.


Landscapes, flowers, architectural structures and life experiences provide inspiration for my artistic expression. Ultimately my process is only a means to an end, which is to create work that lifts the spirit and takes the viewer on a joyful journey.
