“It’s all about the light!” I have a strong need to be creative and thoroughly enjoy that process. Through the years that process has helped me to “see” in a more fully engaged manner. I work in acrylics and oils, but oils are my favorite medium. I love the richness of the paint and working out of doors, painting from life. To capture the way light and shadows fall is what it is all about for me. I enjoy staying physically active, love traveling and exploring new places, and find myself choosing to paint as though it were my full time job! The joy this creative pursuit gives me enhances all aspects of my life.
