Artist's Statement



"I Love the Joy of Color

and the Poetry of Brushwork!"


"My goal in painting is to capture and share my joys and experiences:
to describe how it felt to be there.

Painting is also my conversation with Nature,
my way of cherishing and honoring her wonderful gifts.

Walking along this path,
it is my delight to play and explore with
impressionistic passions of color and energy."
