Through my work, I share my experience of universal themes and hope to express love, joy, peace, and passion through meditative landscape paintings, expressive figurative paintings, or 3-D works of functional art such as a piece of furniture, My inspiration may include the sight of an expansive sky or a touching moment of the day. My life and artwork are spiritually guided and I begin each day in my studio with a prayer and a sense of gratitude. A view of water is a common theme in my work. The beach, local coastal dune lakes, and even rain showers are places of reflection, contemplation, peaceful solitude and great beauty as I reach for focus and personal balance. Wonderful vistas seen during walks in our beautiful coastal Florida Panhandle communities, abstract ideas from daily life, the beautiful organic lines of nature and the human form all compel me to create art.
