I am self-taught. As I continue to develop as an artist, each painting is a teacher. I cope with MS, and find making art to be healing and cathartic. I view painting as a journey of self-discovery.
I love the richness and fluidity of oil paint. I build texture with it and value the ability to change my mind as a painting takes shape. Oil has a natural depth and viscosity.
I am inspired by the natural world. I love to use color and form to create a lasting image that someone will find beautiful. Horses are my favorite subject because of their majesty and power.
