Artist Statement

I have painted, drawn, and been a creative, as long as I can remember. It is one of the most important ways that I find to express myself to the world around me.  At first I only showed my paintings.  But as time has gone on, and as I age, I realize that creating, and creativity are one of the most important things in life.  I’ve found that most creative people, are creative in different areas.  They may have a focus area, but usually their creativity flows over into other areas of their life.  I am one of those people.

I paint in oils and pastels, and sometimes delve into other mediums, just to play.  I play with colors, and light, and how those things change the way I see things around me.  I want the feeling of a place, or object, to be the most important thing you see when looking at one of my paintings.
