"My journey into the art world began in 1999 when I moved to Colorado. I work in three mediums: oil and pastels and acrylics. I must admit that I have developed a particular love for pastels. Pastels lend themselves to vibrant color. Most important is to enjoy creating art.

I am a representational artist inspired daily by what I see. Whatever the scene, I intuitively transpose the mood and the feeling to my canvas and the image comes alive with color and excitement. If the viewer feels this same inspiration, then I am completely gratified with my accomplishment. I have a passion for life and try to enjoy each day to the fullest. Gardening, another love of mine, is creation on the canvas of mother earth. My flowers provide much material to paint. Music, too, is vital in my life. Most evenings a little time is set aside for playing the piano.

April 2007 afforded the opportunity to travel to China leading a group of local artists to participate in an art show at Hangzhou University. Also in 2007, I had the good fortune to have my work selected for the Longmont, Colorado Rhythm on the River poster.

2011 – 2012 I had two paintings in Senator Michael Bennet’s Washington office."
