About the Art

Painting and drawing is a spiritual experience. I draw and paint the beauty and realism of ephemeral moments such as shifting water surfaces, moving clouds, the life of flowers, my children, and the human form. I paint with environmentally friendly “green” paint such as water mixable oil paint, acrylics, oil pastels, chalk pastels, and watercolors. I also paint Plein air paintings of gardens and nature.
