Artist Statement & Biography

My current body of work expresses my love of nature, gardening, and animals that coexist in these environments.  I am an intuitive painter as I attempt  to capture the freedom and fluidity of nature in our world's natural surroundings.

My goal is to have the viewer experience freedom with every brush stroke.
