The primary drive to explore art in recent years stems from my appreciation of color in all things and a need to transpose this vibrancy to paper.

After spending most of my adult life in the business world, I have rediscovered my love for art. My mother was a pastel artist and encouraged me to attend a pastel class in the summer of 1987. Completing two paintings that summer, I did not return to art until I stumbled upon my pastels in 2014.

Bringing my subjects to life and transforming a two-dimensional paper into something that breathes, excites me. Pastels allow me the freedom to work quickly, so as not to hinder the muse within. Speaking to my subjects while I work allows a relationship to develop between the painting and myself, leading to a better representation of what I believe to be the truest nature of the subject. Realism is my passion, though I often see colors that “aren’t there,” driving me to paint with intensity. Capturing the reality of the world and bringing out magnificence that might be overlooked in a casual glance is my intention through art. I am determined to utilize my gift in order to bring forth beauty in a lasting way.
