A painting has the power to change the way we perceive what is around us. My goal is to offer the viewer an opportunity for a moment of deeper connection and appreciation for nature and animals.

Whether I’m working in pastels or acrylics, painting is meditative and peaceful, it offers time to closely explore the beauty in the living world. I am fascinated with representing the effects of strong lights and darks with the rich colors of pastel. I really enjoy getting to know my subjects, leading me to paint with a closer, more intimate perspective.
