My passion is color and oil/acrylic painting. My ideas spring from life: traveling, living on a farm and a vivid imagination. After my children were grown, I went back to school and earned a Masters of Fine Art degree. It is my current belief that there is so much war, fear and uncertainty in our lives, I have no desire to add to it with bleak or didactic paintings. My work is harmonious and uplifting while having a strong presence of atmosphere and intensity.
