I have immersed myself in the creative world for over 20 years. I earned a Bachelor's degree in Landscape Design, worked as a graphic artist for 15 years and eventually became determined to apply my creativity to the fine arts. It is in this realm that I have found my truest expression.

I have an equal appreciation for abstract and representational art, but in each finished canvas, I see the emotion felt while creating it. Painting helps me process life and each series represents another chapter. I passionately embrace the unique ability of an artist to put emotion into a visual context. For me, it is expressed through texture, color, pattern, beauty, playfulness and subject matter. While emotion drives the process, the inspiration for each piece, whether plein air or studio, is my love for the outdoors and all that God has created.
