About the Art
For me, art has to come from the heart, as clichéd as that sounds. All of the artists that I love have painted that way, even when it was considered unacceptable. I love how they “did their own thing,” in spite of adversity and challenges. Van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci, Claude Monet, Giotto, and Gauguin are just a few I’ve come to admire for their determination and commitment to paint from the heart. They were true to themselves, and it shows in their work.
I paint with acrylics mostly on canvas, gessobord or birch board. Certain scenes inspire everyone, but for me, nature attracts me again and again.
Please also enjoy my daughter's--Jesse's--charcoal drawings while you’re here in addition to the other art. Her expressions are another wonderful gift I’m grateful to be able to share.
Thank you for visiting,
