As a child, I was fascinated by the vibrant colors of sunsets, the seasons, flowers and certain landscapes. But all of my life I have suffered from severe asthma. While the other children were outside enjoying the snow or jumping in the fallen leaves, blooming flowers of spring, etc. I was inside, looking out the window wishing I could be a part of it. I would never have acquired my artistic skills if it hadn't been for my asthma. I learned to draw and paint, due to many times staying home in bed or at the hospitals (for a couple weeks at a time)with not much to do. It was my escape, a cherished place I could create and imagine I was there instead. While these days my asthma is better, thanks to new medications, I still feel the joy in my heart of creating a special window to the world, my world, for those also interested to see too.
My goal as an artist was to paint these subjects capturing the very things that change quickly due to the season or weather or aging. I wanted to shed light on every day things that many people take for granted because they’re too used to seeing them. I want to take the ordinary, and turn it into extraordinary. I achieve this by working with brighter colors, deeper shadows and lighter highlights, and sometimes mixing media. I always strive to give every piece a little bit of life and vitality.
I'm always creating. Please check back when I have updated my paintings, will be taking pictures of my more recent works. I'm interested in doing commissioned work and occasionally I sell my works on eBay (please click on the link at the bottom of this page)....
