I paint to celebrate nature and to honor people who are celebrating life. Art, wether it is practiced or purchased, will heal & inspire, it will reveal the extraordinary in what previously seemed ordinary. It also helps us re-experience precious moments. I'm using the skills I've learned in order to inspire an emotional response. I emphasize the play of natural light In my paintings and use color generously combined with brush strokes that capture fleeting and treasured moments. I love to paint outdoors as well as in my studio. Being actively immersed in nature contributes to a soulful expression of her many moods. My seascapes and portraits have been hailed by patrons as stunning, vivid and emotionally stirring.
