After many years of working as a fine artist, my original goal “to create and spread beauty” still remains the same as when I first began my art-making journey in 2001. With each new oil painting I create, I am striving to evoke feelings of happiness, hope, and peace. I love to paint landscapes that offer an uplifting view of beautiful places. I also love to paint flowers that smile with contentment as they bask in a pool of the sun’s warming light. Each of my paintings are intended to be snapshots of one simple, perfect moment in time. They are meant to provide a glimmer of hope for this broken world.
