“Painting for me is a celebration of beauty and creation and the making of art a sacred expression.”
I was raised in a family of eight, the second child of six daughters. We had a pet Black Angus cow named Girl and a hound dog named Elvis. I find great joy in painting the powerful tranquility of the rural American landscape or the beautiful peaceful creatures of our planet. Hopefully we will always reside in a world where we can enjoy these simple pleasures. If I am a successful artist, the paintings I create will transport the viewer beyond the senses, free of thought and self consciousness. The paintings then become an instrument through which the viewer and the artist glimpse the joyful oneness of which we are all a part.
