I have been painting ,drawing and making things since I was a child . The creative process gives me great joy . My paintings and drawings are impressions of everyday areas of beauty . A moment between friends ,a celebration , a beautiful home or garden space ; the simple moments of beauty that we see and might overlook are the subjects that I seek to paint. Light ,color and texture achieved through layers of paint evoke the mood and atmosphere of my work. Acrylic paintings are the main body of the work I do ,but I often switch to water color and pastels.
