Welcome to my art website!

Here you will find my recent work, links to my social media profiles and information on originals that are for sale.

I’ve been an artist since age 17 when I discovered my talent / passion for art and I’ve been hooked ever since!

Now in my 40’s, I’m still as passionate about artwork than ever and I look forward to sharing my work with you.

About My Art

My work has never been classified as any particular style although I would discribe it as modern and sometimes abstract.

Some of my favorite artists are old masters like Picasso, Braque, Matisse and Cezanne to modern masters like Hockney.

When it comes to creating artwork, I enjoy a wide variety of subjects including still life’s and animals.

My iPhone gives me the ability to take pictures on the fly and use them for future paintings that I want to work on.

I enjoy working in oil pastel because it gives me the ability to create paintings using rich colors regardless if I’m hanging out with my kids, or in my studio working alone.

When I’m not working in pastel, I love oil painting, working with acrylic, drawing and working with colored pens, pencils, crayons or whatever is nearby.

What Motivates Me To Create

It would have been easy for me to give up on my art when I was in my 20’s, when life got busy, but I continued with it for one main reason, I can’t go one day without wanting to create new artwork and if I’m not working on art, I’m thinking about.

That passion for creating art has carried me through many ups and downs of life and as I grow older, I realize what Picasso said about leaving his body outside the studio because when I create, I reconnect with that same passion that I had at 17 and I can easily work on my art for hours.

Some of the other things that help motivate me are a beautiful day, I moved to Missouri about 2 years ago and am surrounded by nature. Besides that, I’m also motivated by great music, good movies and road trips with my family.
