Over the years I have studied more part time with my art, but love to include anything creative in my life. I'm inspired by a lot of different things, but in art, by my surroundings. That's why I enjoy landscape painting more than any other.
My favorite artist of all time is Monet. It is the way he captures the mood of the day, his understanding of light and how it effects his subject matter and his ability to show movement through his strokes.
I had the ultimate pleasure of visiting his gardens in France and it was as though I had stepped into one of his paintings. He truly was a master at capturing a moment.
My hope is that through my art, people will experience their own moment. That it is not just looking at a picture, but stepping into another world that would bring joy and hope to each and every viewer.
