Art has always been a part of my life. My mother was an artist and my father an art collector. In college I explored oil painting, as well as, two and three dimensional design.
As an interior designer I worked with an artist on her home. Her painting studio drew me to it where she would have a painting in process on her easel. She would share the elements she was applying to the painting learned in her latest art class. This exposure inspired me to take up painting again.
Since 2012 painting has become a major focus in my life. It is a wonderful feeling to be lost in the creation of an image that represents my view of a person, event or scene.
My hope is that you will enjoy viewing my art as much as I enjoy creating it.
