I paint what I love. My paintings are filled with bright brilliant colors. My subjects include such things as beaches, boats, people and pets. I am inspired by everyday movements such as hanging laundry on a clothsline, painting an old boat, playing on the beach or in the snow, singing, dancing, yoga and anything that brings joy through simple life pleasures. I feel the world is filed with enough visuals of destruction, hate and anger. I need to balance these negativities with joy, peace and gentle portrayals of life. For me painting provides an oasis. I strive to bring brightness though my creations in hopes to brighten at least one other person's life.
