Artist Statement


Painting to me is a passion for life.  It is deep rooted within my soul and it has been there since childhood.  I love bringing a painting to life with a world full of touch, taste, smell, sight, sound and emotion by simply applying the brush to the canvas.   A city skyline to me is full of all of these things. When I paint one I listen for its heartbeat and with that rhythm begin to create something magical.  I love to paint outside of the lines. This freedom of expression has allowed me to paint full time for the past 15 years. I feel very blessed and fortunate and hope to continue on this journey for the rest of my life.  With that being said, I hope the viewer of my works can step inside the paintings and see the sights, feel the changing of the sky, hear the sounds, taste the tastes, and simply smile with happiness.
