My Paintings


Multiple layers of acrylic paint and glaze combine to create texture and rich depths of color. The viewer instantly has an urge to touch the canvas—to dip a finger in a pool of water or sky—to not only see, but feel the emotion of the painting.


I paint in an emotional environment that often includes painting at daybreak, hot coffee, and classical music. These  components combined, feed my mind and soul and the canvas and my thoughts are one. I am able to express what my heart is feeling and what my mind is thinking. 


Art creates an emotional reaction in each individual. My hope is that others too, will experience their own emotion through the ethereal blend of color, glaze and texture—enabling each person to reach their own conclusions and illusions.
