Adjectives that have been used to describe my work are expressive, joyful, textural, colorful and ebullient. Whether working plein air or in my studio, a sublime connection with nature permeates my paintings. Varied and interesting usage of color and texture are intrinsic in all of my paintings.
As a self-taught, life-long artist who paints primarily in oils and soft pastels, tactile qualities and vibrancy are always key elements in my work. I have had several wonderful mentors/teachers who have taught me methodology used in Russian impressionism and color technique, as well as brushwork, values and composition.
I look forward to sharing my passion for art and nature, color and textures with audiences throughout Colorado and beyond.
