I refer to my art as Expressionistic paintings. Whether realistic or abstract they are my impressions of the subject matter. I work from photos that I have taken and from memories. In either case, my hand is guided by my emotions rather than structure and rules. I refer to my process as that of a mime doing improv with a brush. My canvass is now my iPad, my brush is an Apple Pencil and my primary application is a program called Procreate. I publish Limited Edition GiClee Prints and my original Artist Proofs are presented on Canvass and/or White Chromaluxe Aluminum. I began my art career at age 12 using oil paints on canvass. This continued through the completion of my major concentration while studying at Florida State University. I then accepted a position with Seminole County School Board as the Graphic Artist in the county office, and completed my senior year of college at FTU (now UCF) and received my Bachelor of Fine Art Degree. I am now retired and living my dream of painting full-time. I hope you enjoy my paintings as much as I enjoy creating them.

Photography has provided me a way to slow down and meditate on the beautiful things around me, looking at views that I used to let go by without a thought. Many photographers have influenced me, especially Florida photographer Clyde Butcher, who not only creates masterpiece black and white landscape photos but also is active in ecological preservation movements. Light and composition, lens choice for a scene, getting low near the ground, going vertical to capture beautiful Florida clouds, these are the questions that I go through my mind now, and I try to capture those moments to share with others.
