Inspired by travel and Plein air studies, my magical landscapes express passion through brilliant hues and dramatic contrasts. My vibrant paintings are built up in layers of oil paint on a sienna-toned linen or canvas. Once varnished my paintings take on a translucent depth resembling stained glass.
My gift of creative communication occurs as my art is seen and experienced by others. Studying with admired artists honed my skills and intention. Perseverance through challenges focused my style and voice. I discovered that creating art brings healing power to my body, mind, and spirit. My purpose is to create energy and joy through art.
I create oil paintings of National Parks and western landscapes for private and corporate collectors including the Good Samaritan Cancer Center, International Association of Fire Fighters, Washington DC, Caddell Construction Co., and Pike Pioneer Museum.
