with my husband, Chuck and our golden retriever, Rocky on 5 beautiful “mountain top” acres. I have been inspired to draw, study and paint all of my life with the never ending focus on the play of light on living creatures, whether they be trees, rocks, or breathing beings. When I paint I get to become very intimate with my subject. I see it/them for what they really are. Light. Color, Radiance. I’m brought to tears every time. That’s why I paint. To share that. To show that. To live that. Wow. Here I go again…tearing up. Style & Method: I choose to live as an oil painter. I have always used oils and find they lend themselves to the luminosity and depth I NEED to show in my work. Living creatures are so full of bounced light, it is a never ending challenge to put that in my paintings. My style is basically realistic though I love a juicy plein air now and then. My quest is to show my subjects in a way that causes to viewer to stop and take notice. To appreciate the power, gentleness, whatever that is unique to that animal or person or location. I’ve been told that my work has a certain radiance that transcends the canvas. Good. That’s the point.”
