My love of art and expressing myself through art started as a child. I kept that dream alive by painting periodically for family and friends. However, the commitment to my family and full-time career did not allow me to commit the time I desired to find my own style and voice through oil painting. Since I retired, I have the time and opportunity to do what I love most.
Most of my oil paintings are created with the sky being the primary part of each piece. They are all full of color and speak to me.
I always hope they will speak to those who buy my work as well.
I have been inspired by Georgia O'Keeffe and K.D. Lang. Both have helped me find the words for why I paint.
"I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for." Georgia O'Keeffe
"The sky is an infinite movie to me. I never get tired of looking at what's happening up there." K.D. Lang
