For as long as I can remember I have been drawn to the environment and spirit of the natural world. Love for nature and spending time outdoors are huge components of my work and inspiration to create.
At this time, I mostly work with acrylic paints and mixed media. Within each art work I create, texture is important to me. I believe this texture adds richness to each of my canvasses.
As an artist, my goal is to visually capture the essence of the environment and the spirit of nature.

If I am successful, I believe that the images may speak to the viewer and evoke a wide range of emotions.
