Would I paint if no one saw my work? The answer is a definite yes. I love to explore places, people and objects through the richness of paint. The buttery feel and color of the paint on my brush inspires and excites me. I enjoy exploring light and shadow with loose, soft brush strokes and pushing color. My hope is that I will continue this path for a long time.
Old masters and contemporary artists continue to influence my work. Through their talents I learn about techniques, color, composition, etc and the value of hard work on a daily basis. Workshops taken with artists I admire help to guide me through my art journey.
