Artist's Statement

“Painting to me is like poetry; the brush is my painter’s pen, drawing the scene into a simple story using color, composition and value.. I paint with intention from the heart as much as from the head with loose, colorful brushstrokes. My intention is to connect you, the viewer with the story and emotion of the scene, with the hope that my work will bring visual delight.”
