Mother Garden
18×24 Acrylic on Canvas

In the dark of night her motherly whisperings span through flowery fields and by morn gratitude abounds in full bloom.

Timeless Orchids
18×36 Acrylic on Canvas

I have a dear friend who grows the most amazing orchids. Each visit to her home turns into a mini photo shoot.  I can’t resist their beauty and I am ever grateful to have found a way to gaze upon these exceptional wonders of nature anytime I desire.  I paint them and they become timeless on my canvas.

Tulip Splendor
24×24 Acrylic on Canvas

I love tulips.  And these exceptional specimens captured my attention each time I passed.  Wishing they would last forever had me fill my palette and pick up my brush.  This timeless reminder of Spring is meant to widen smiles all year long.

My education has been a weaving of practical art instruction throughout my career as an artist. My painting style reflects significant phases in my life and it continues to shift and evolve keeping pace with the ever-changing scenery and rhythms. Inspired by the beauty seen in literally everything I most often employ the use of acrylics, soft pastel, watercolor and ink in my work.
