Behind every painting is
an idea,

Life moves too quickly. Art allows us to slow down.
When I paint, I reflect on the subject, experiment with color, and explore emotions.
When you view that painting, you pause, to
   see, to   feel and to  remember.



Whether it’s a child’s curious face, a crowded scene at a farmers market, or a freshly-picked carrot, each painting is a brand-new process of discovery for me.


A commissioned work is a painting
I create just for you — a memory of your pet or your child, or something that goes with your couch. Because it will be with you for a long time, the painting is my investment in you.


Two of my favorite things are meeting new people (you!) and making art. And when I’m working with beginning or advanced students, teaching what I’ve learned is a perfect combination of the two.
