Artist Statement

Walk with me...Sense the landscape, touch the grass, smell the air, watch the water move, feel the moment. You are there...
I paint in acrylic and watercolor, sometimes in pastel, capturing on canvas scenes of places that have been visited by me, by friends and relatives and you. I hope you feel present in the scene, want to stand there and drink in the beauty, touch the details, feel the texture. If the painting is from a photograph of a special place in your experience, I do my best to represent it with paint, brushes, canvas, paper for you to enjoy with a smile each time you look at it. And if I'm painting it well, you'll be able to use your imagination to add details that offer special memories for you.
  Member Profile:

I am a retired educational administrator with a business and organizational leadership background, having hung up my formal career cap and plunging brushes first into my "encore career", painting. While landscapes tend to be my first choice subject, I also enjoy painting people, animals, still life, and almost anything that catches my eye and my heart. I started acrylic painting on a whim in December 2015, joining my then co-workers in a worksite wellness activity painting Van Gogh's Starry Night. Almost five years later, we had to move to a larger home to house my canvases, carts, paints, brushes, and all the accompanying tools that make painting so much fun in my home studio. Other artists overawe me with their talent, creativity, and individuality, motivating me to continuously learn and develop my style.
