Artist Statement

I have been painting and studying art over the past decade or so.  I have been fortunate to work with Bea Nelson and other artists over the years.  Painting, I find, softens the soul.  It is a peaceful time for me.  The outside forces just wither away and I’m focused on the project at hand.  It is my happy place.  I find I am in tune to the depths and shapes and colors of the forest, plants and animals and in trying to get their likenesses challenging.
