This watercolor painting is a gift from an online friend who didn't realize I have blue eyes, not brown. I love it anyway!

I am a painter who loves color and texture and that is what I hope to convey in my work. My paintings usually start with an unusual perspective, a color idea, or a play of light and shadow. Luscious color captivates me and I love working with texture and different techniques. My aim is to develop a sense of freedom from expectation which allows each painting to converse with the viewer individually. A fellow artist recently said of one of my paintings "it makes me want to touch it" - and I told him "that's exactly what I want you to do!" Mission accomplished!!


Come in, take your time, look around, and let's start the conversation......


"There are moments in our lives, there are moments in a day, when we seem to see beyond the usual. Such are the moments of our greatest happiness. Such are the moments of our greatest wisdom. If one could but recall his vision by some sort of sign. It was in this hope that the arts were invented. Sign-posts on the way to what may be. Sign-posts toward greater knowledge." ~ Robert Henri
