A real pursuit of painting did not begin until several years ago, well into my adult, empty nest life. For me, the act of painting is a personal journey of exploring painting ideas, themes and techniques to express a scene or concept of landscapes I have visited or imagined.
I like to experiment with texture, reduction, surface manipulation and multiple layers to innovate and add depth to work. It is play and it is work and it is the process, not the outcome, that keeps me most engaged as I explore the painting.
I hope you will enjoy exploring my portfolio to see how my journey has evolved.
Painting gives me joy… Find joy in your journey...
