I paint what I live, sifted through my experience. Every morning I wake up to the joy and beauty of God’s creation. To me, the landscapes of nature pulse with the vibrancy of life and color. Forests, meadows, mountains and rivers; rocks and streams, sunsets and moonlight, my palette and brush celebrate their riot of hue. The expected myriad of verdant greens in the lushness of our mountain forests, to its unexpected cool, shadowy depths of dioxazine purple, magenta and pthalo blue; to light filtering through the density of foliage to sparkle in glints of yellow on new spring growth, color and motion abound in my paintings.
