hi, there!

When I got stuck on a painting, my 91-year-old art teacher 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 Source of light in my life too.

I paint for the joy of it, and I'm so excited to share the joy with you. Reach out anytime! Can't wait to hear from you.

inspiration

As my dog, Thunder, agrees - I'm inspired by Post & Modern Impressionism, specifically Van Gogh and Cara Pabst Moran. 

I paint with bold strokes and vivid colors to convey passion and urgency in my work, primarily using palette knives. My paintings contain many layers, starting with words inscribed on the backgrounds of each piece.

My paintings contain messages, and my collections tell stories. Click here to learn more!
