I have been creative since a small child with everything from plasticine, spirograph, coloring books, caligraphy, drawing, macramé, clay and silkscreening.

In the last 6 years that I have been devoting my time to painting with both acrylic and oil and finding joy and freedom in the process.

The series of Elephant paintings started with one for a friend and then morphed into many paintings. These paintings are close to my heart as they helped me heal after the loss of my Mom. I would also suggest learning more about how amazing these elephants are. Please take a look at Echo-An Elephant to Remember (PBS Movie). There is another larger work in progress piece that I hope to finish by January 2015 featuring 4 elephants in an abstract form.

Most of my abstract paintings are started with an expression of paint and then I see where my thoughts take me. I am always playing with colors and textures and how they mix together. The results are always interesting and some of my favorite works.

Many people don't like crows, I have often found them noisy, messy and a nuisance on the golf course. But, the more I observe them, the more interesting them become. I highly recommend watching David Suzuki's Nature of Things - A Murder of Crows ... they really are fascinating. I hope you like my crow paintings. There may be more in the future.

I have learned from many artists along the way. I have been fortunate in sharing creative energy and studio time with some wonderful artists.

I am open to creating a custom piece just for you. Please contact me.

Elephant Series

The elephants have really been inspired by the memory of my Mother who passed away in June 2010. She loved elephants and had many elephant figures in her house when I was growing up. When I am painting these, I feel she is beside me... cheering me on. I love you Mom.
