Landscapes are my primary subject - I have been known as a tree painter because of my aspen paintings- but I regularly move to other subjects and locations to keep things fresh, challenge myself, and hone my skills. Painting is a lifelong learning experience for me and I regularly seek opportunities for professional growth.
Brushes, palette knives and sometimes my fingers (!) are used to apply paint in a variety of textures. Control of values, colors and edges bring a scene to life and thoughtful use of these tools allow me to create a sense of three dimensions on a two dimensional canvas.
My intention is to paint with passion and understanding thereby creating a relatable experience, or as one of my mentors said, creating a “visual dialogue" with the viewer.
