My life is art. It’s about the creation of art, the support of artists, and impacting the world positively through art. I believe in and am building a non-competitive community where artists can grow their skills and pursue their passions together, because art is powerful and purposeful. Art changes our perspective and opens us up to something much deeper, higher, and grander than ourselves.

Creating unique impressions of the world as I see and experience it, is life-giving to me, and it seems, to those who enjoy my work. I am a deep-welled person, sensitive in every way a person can be, which heightens my awareness and ability to connect with people through my art. Though it also makes life more painful, it also makes it more beautiful and I’m grateful for it.

My smooth, flowing, moving landscapes capture the interaction I experience with nature. God says “the sky speaks, the heavens proclaim, even the rocks cry out, the mountains and hills break into singing, the trees of the forest sing for joy!” This is what I see glimpses of and hear whispers of when I’m in nature. This is what I aim to translate into an inspiring, joy-filled, and powerful visual display.

I paint in acrylic, in thin glazes and veils, which add interest, vibrancy and depth to my work. If you look closely, you’ll see many layers and hints of magenta – my underpainting color of choice – peaking through around every curve. It’s eye-candy for the brain! I was self-taught for 7 years before I realized, I don’t know, what I don’t know, and then began my pursuit of learning, growth, and mastery. I have now benefited immensely from the mentorship, friendship, and instruction of master artists such as: David Langevin, Mark Heine, Heather Pant, and Mitchell Albala, to name a few.
