I love the works of the Old Masters but the Impressionist painters are the painters I most admire for their vibrant use of color and their individual brushwork. As it did for the impressionists, everyday subjects inspire me. I love flowers and landscapes and appreciate the beauty of nature. It’s quite a challenge to capture the feel of a time or place on canvas rather than a photo representation.
I’ve been featured in several national artists publications and have won many awards but while those honors are nice, the best reward ~ for me as an artist ~ is when a collector purchases a piece of work. My hope and goal is to add lasting value to the world we live in and perhaps capture a part of God’s wonderful creation to canvas.
