Art has always been my escape and pursuit of passion. I enjoy working with nature, finding it to be a never ending but always changing inspiration. My paintings very much reflect my observations and perceptions of that relationship between everyday objects and the colors and movements of nature. I am a self-taught artist who has dabbled in various disciplines of art over the years settling comfortably as a painter. I enjoy painting in both the abstract and realism styles, with acrylics and various mixed mediums as my preference. I hope you enjoy my art as much as I have enjoyed creating it.
