The exhilaration of creating large scale acrylic paintings that are colorful, loose, and lively is simply addictive! I lose myself in the process. The images are rendered in a spontaneous, impressionistic way, often revealing an inherent rhythm. Sources of my inspiration include places I have seen during my travels, experiences I have had, and people I have met. I have a true appreciation for the beauty that can be discovered almost anywhere. My particular interests are color, patterns, and rhythm which can be found in both people and nature. Through "art". . . I am able to express these things. And through “teaching". . . I am able to help students find the creativity within themselves.
