My art and life have everything in common. Occasionally I have moments of great clarity and satisfaction. More often it seems messy and I'm not happy with the way it looks. During those moments I stop and remind myself it's not finished yet.

“I have always loved art and music. My father was both a musician and artist and showed me the joy of a creative spirit. I began painting plein air and selling my work in the 1980’s. I studied as I painted and I was drawn by the work of the impressionists. I studied Van Gogh by travelling to view his work in museums in Holland and France. People often say they see that influence when they see my work. I love the nontraditional use of color. I often paint straight from the tube using a palette knife, as Van Gogh did. Today I understand that my artwork is an intimate reflection of my life’s journey. Each piece of art marks a moment in time along my path. It is very personal. I love making that special connection with people when they enjoy a specific piece of my art.”
