I paint because it makes happy.  I choose subjects that please me; I use colors that are bright and reflect a happy tone.


I have studied with Lin Baum, Pat Bombach, Janet McGrath, Karlyn Holman, Kay Rowe, and many others.  I feel practice is important and try to wet my brush every day, even if it is only for a few minutes.

I truly believe that if you can see it you can paint it (Lin Baum).   If I have a talent it is God given; therefore, I feel duty bound to share whatever skills I have with those who wish to learn, or just want to appreciate what is all around them.   

Thank you for looking at my art.  If it evokes a feeling in you, fine.  If you want to analyze it, also fine….but really, I did it just for fun.
