Following a bout with the Big C a few years ago, I began to see the world in vivid COLOR! Having always been a creative soul, but one who held back, I realized that I had nothing to lose. Never too far from my consciousness is the awareness that life is fleeting and that the moment is NOW. It is this wisdom that fuels the fantastic working groove from which my paintings emerge.
Vibrant, animated images illustrating the culture and folk of central Texas, Louisiana, Colorado, and the depths of my imagination come to play often on my canvas. Celebrations of gratefulness, clarity, color, compassion, music, spiritual journeys, life, and death come alive. In addition to consistently working on my "family" paintings, I am also dabbling in the abstract using a variety of media, including cold wax and oil and acrylic on paper.
