I have always had a passion for art both in terms of creating it and collecting the work of my favorite local artists. Nature is the inspiration for my art. A simple walk outdoors invigorates me, lifts my spirits and fosters creativity. In my art I aim to draw the viewer in to experience the feelings of beauty, tranquility and excitement that I feel when I select a subject to paint. One of my favorite subjects is water and the way it reacts with the weather and the change of seasons. I call these paintings “Ways of Water”.
With the escalating threat of global warming, I support all efforts to protect our environment and believe that it is important for a landscape artist to present an impressionistic view of nature, as it exists today, for generations to come.
