Painting makes my heart sing. I like to paint quickly without thinking too much about the process. I prefer the luminosity of oil paint, and, I like to paint subjects which resonate with me. I try to respond to the subject moment by moment. And, I try to avoid creating from a place of authorship or preconception -- ego aside, judgment aside, keeping within a state of flow and grace. I love when the painting tells me what the next move shall be. Happy accidents excite me and inspire me to continue exploring. I enjoy painting plein air, inspired by nature, and also in my studio when the weather isn’t so friendly. Paintings range from small to large in size and price. Inquiries welcome and studio visits by appt.
