My vision is to create more joy in our world by crafting beautiful paintings and teaching others to do the same.
I paint the things and places I love, always striving to capture fleeting moments of beauty. My paintings are a conversation between me and my subject.

This is pure magic and is really exciting to me!
Painting and living an artful life brings me great joy. My paintings, in turn, bring great joy to collectors and fans.

We all can choose joy for ourselves and give joy to others.
Whether you're a collector or another artist, if my work and vision resonate with you then I invite you to join me!
