artist statement

I am my best when I create on a regular basis and I have used many mediums. Recently oil paints and watercolors have been what I use to express myself.

 I am the happiest when I can use bright colors! I hope my paintings, convey feelings of joy  through the use of organic shapes and color ! I like  to work directly from life when possible, but I also use photo references of places I have been.

Most of my paintings are land scapes ,floral scapes , or florals. They are  painted in bold colors and loose strokes to create a modern , yet impressionistic take on realism.
