'I have been an artist as long as I can remember. I love working with thick oil paint and mixed media. I am inspired by the many masters of past generations and I have been fortunate to see some of the worlds greatest art in person. My eyes have been a camera for intense study in my travels around the world. What I create comes from my imagination, memory and my emotion. It is my quest to capture the sublime, haunting beauty and spirit. When someone holds their hand to their heart and says that they “feel” my art , I am moved ... I have accomplished my mission.
