“I have been taking photographs and painting for as long as I can remember. My interest in photography started as a teenager when I took photographs that were published nationwide by Associated Press. I used the proceeds to purchase the equipment for my first darkroom. My love of photography has only grown over the years.
I have a passion for oil painting in the Russian Post Impressionism Style. I have been fortunate to study under many great artists specializing in this style of painting including Pam Ingalls, Henry Stinson and Cheri Christensen. I have also taken Foundation Drawing Courses at Gage Academy of Art and most recently started exploring painting with Encaustics.”
“Processing life through my photography, art, words and mostly love. When I paint, or take certain photos, I tap into the spirituality in me and the world. The best way to explain it is that the translation moves through me like a wave that moves from my mind, through my hand and onto the canvas. I am not just painting glaciers, or baby chicks or faces. I am painting the feeling or emotion that goes with the moment or memory whether it be love, doubt, sadness or grace. It is that feeling that the painting or photographs evoke.”
