One of the greatest joys in my life has been the continual study of art. I constantly read art books and watch painting videos. And I paint, paint, paint!
The passion to paint what I love and see as beautiful is a force deep within that never ceases. I am driven to paint in much the same way that I am driven to breathe.
I don’t choose my subject matter so much as it chooses me. Deep within my heart there is a burning, yearning passion to paint. It consumes my thoughts daily. When one is an artist, one is full of art, overcome by art, possessed by art.
My paintings speak of the joy and brilliance of color in nature and in life. Color is always a driving force when I paint. I paint because I truly want to paint. But I also paint because I have to paint.
