ARTIST STATEMENT:
No matter what challenges are in my life " ART IS FOOD FOR THE SOUL". Paint well, Laugh Loud, Enjoy Life!

Through the use of color and design my paintings reflect my interest in life and my personality; positive and bright, emotion full of joy. Hopefully the viewer experiences these emotions. A sketch book is always with me as I prefer working directly with live people, real landscapes, and beautiful objects. For 19 years I have been teaching and directing a Life Study Class and Plein Air Painters group,
for The Gold Coast Watercolor Society.
