About The Artist

I love the challenge of trying to capture the way the light dances on flower petals or the regal magnificence found in the presence of mountains. I create my artwork to be a reflection of the simple, profound beauty in our world and for each painting to find its permanent home with those who want their environment to surround them with calm and peace.

In addition to my love for painting I enjoy good books, gardening, and time with my family and pets.

I would love to share more of my world of watercolor with you. Sign up for my monthly art bulletin to see new works-in-progress, inspiration, peeks into the studio, events and exhibitions.
