my story

My first oil painting class was in Molly's School of Art, and it changed my life. Molly, my teacher and mentor, was trained by Ritchie Cooper - one of Norman Rockwell's assistants. 

 

When I started painting, Molly always asked me "Where is the Light Source?" 

 

The question became my answer. 

 

Art is spiritual. When I look for the light source in my paintings, I find the Light Source in my life. This is why my online shop is called Light Source Gallery - to help me remember to look for the light in dark times.

studio hours

painting style

My painting style is modern impressionism - focusing more on shadows and light than on highly realistic details. 

 

I'm inspired by the Post Impressionism & Fauvism movements - especially artists Vincent Van Gogh, Cara Pabst Moran, and Henri Matisse.

 

I LOVE mixed media art with vivid colors and bold brushwork & inscribe my paintings with layers of words.
