All my work is a story and a part of me and the things I see and feel in my life. I use many layers of oil paints on canvas or wood panels. When I see a flower, a cool lady, animals, landscape, or a thought, or something that happened to me I need to capture it on canvas. I love working with accidents and out of the blue ideas, similar to writing a song. When I start a painting I want to see big color, brush strokes, good vibe, and beauty. I grew up in Seattle WA where my painting style was formed. I spent the last 20 years painting in
SW Montana and just relocated to Phoenix AZ in 2021.
My favorite quote from Emil Nolde, “Grasp what lies at the very heart; transform nature by infusing it with one’s own mind and spirit”.
