As a “small a” artist, I am primarily self-taught. Painting for me is an exploratory creative adventure.  I paint what naturally sparks my energy.  I paint what I feel naturally connected to.  Painting for me is a companion, a friend with whom I can simply be. My somewhat eclectic gallery of art is a consequence of choosing to paint what sparks my interest. 

If I have do have one theme it is to paint “inner landscapes” where I find natural connection.   I attempt to capture the moment of a special feeling, thought or situation that we all have experienced but what sometimes can be a buried.  These moments may lie dormant in denial, be hidden under an overly intense lifestyle, or they may be just lost in time.  It is my hope that seeing paintings like “Surrender”, “Then”, or “Hope” will spark a memory for you to re-live and enjoy.
