Artist Statement

My art expresses the joy and wonder I experience in my daily life.  My acrylic and oil paintings, line and wash and charcoal drawings show soul-touching scenes which tell the viewer a story, bringing them into an intimate moment of the event I capture. Sharing simple, relatable moments expressed in my art allows me to deepen cherished memories and experiences.  I invite viewers to sense positive emotions and be reminded of less complicated times in their personal history.
