Artist Statement

Art enhances Life!

I absolutely LOVE art. I love the process. I have been through many stages in my art: wildlife, landscapes, farmers, close up people, textured vehicles, wet into wet, strong highlights and shadows... As an artist, I am always searching for ways to make my art more exciting and visually rewarding.

My new interest, which takes texture to the max, is acrylic pours. Several of my pours are only touched by a brush on my signature. I hope you enjoy them—you need to zoom in to see what is happening!
