"ALTHOUGH I LOVE TO PAINT JUST FOR ME, AND FOR SHOW ENTRIES, TEACHING STUDENTS IS WHAT GIVES ME THE MOST JOY. I LOVE WORKING WITH PEOPLE, AND WATCHING THEM GET EXCITED AS THEY LEARN THE SECRETS OF WATERCOLOR.

SHARING MY WATERCOLOR GIFT WITH THEM IS MY PASSION".

" Painting is all about Emotions ".  It's about that special "feeling" a viewer gets when they look at a painting. The subject isn't really as important as the emotion that moves them as they stand there taking it all in. It's that "feeling" that they want to take home and put on their walls. That's what I want to create for them.


As artists we've been given an inherent gift to create; the gratitude is sharing our creations with others. I have been blessed by being able to spend my entire life creating "feelings" for others. Thank you to all of you who share my paintings.
