ARTIST STATEMENT It's all about COLOR! Hooked at age six I mix my first kaleidoscope of watercolors. Life is changed forever! A vivid awakening occurs as a teenager. Oil paints launch a lifetime preview into unique perspectives and painting processes. My soul ignites. My heart is on fire. Earth is intriguing especially her fields of flowers. Great preparation is required to catch them in their prime. Each new brush stroke orchestrates a new symphony of life creating movement, drama and romance. Moments only here to be cherished today. Painting. One of my closest connections to heaven.
