I find a soulful release from the struggle and creative challenges of oil painting on canvas. Each new work is my attempt to capture the beauty and color of a single moment on the hills and paths of the Pacific Coast. I also enjoy painting the more delicate images of tropical flowers. My wish is for my work to make people smile and bring some joy to my visitors and patrons.
To paint is to come alive, in a way that no other segment of my life can accomplish for me. I look forward to the exciting years ahead, where I can grow artistically, spiritually, creatively and technically.
As a twice-healed cancer survivor, I am inspired to live and to paint as I never have before!
