"Anything under the sun is beautiful if you have the vision. The world is not interested in mere pictures. People look for this expression of beauty. The painter will never achieve this by merely painting pictures...he must show people more than they already see and he must show them with so much human sympathy and understanding that they will recognize it as if they themselves had seen the beauty and the glory. This is where the artist comes in."

I hope you enjoyed seeing the new work created during the last few months. It's been a pleasure to capture on canvas the many places I get to paint and hope each work conveys to you the emotion I felt when chancing upon the scene. As Edgar Degas so aptly put it..."art is not what you see, but what you make others see"...that's my goal... to create a painting for you to enjoy and find new moments of quiet reflection each time you see it.
Studying with nationally recognized landscape and still life painters in three mediums has enhanced my early background in oils and and continues to be a source of encouragement and learning that cannot be duplicated.
My work has been shown on the juried art show circuit, in galleries, and in corporate and museum settings. The response of my collectors has been most gratifying and continues to inspire me to continue on this journey of discovery.
I am most appreciative of the awards I received in the different venues and hope each painting reflects new growth...for painters should never stop learning and each painting is the next challenge that teaches us... and keeps us sharing our efforts with you, the viewer. Art sustains us all and am hopeful it brings you the gifts of the 'beauty and the glory'.
