This collection reflects work completed since 2009. 

I believe - that Art, in all its forms, exists to enrich our lives. Loving it, should be why it comes into our environment.

Welcome. I began painting with oil at 15, with some trepidation and a lot of encouragement from my teachers  Sr. M. Lucia, and William Whitsett.. At the age of 18, I received my first portrait commission which launched my life as a professional artist. I never looked back. Since that time, my career has taken many paths, but paint has always been the medium most interesting to me, and still is. The learning is ongoing to this day.

 Within this site, you will find information to make an informed decision about becoming a collector of my work. I invite you to spend some time here; not only in studying the art, but also what goes on behind the scenes. 2 beautiful short films were made, one by Jeff Dolan, and the other, Jerry Mann. Scroll through the sidebar under PHILOSOPHY to discover where they are. 


My art making  is centered on responding to paint in the present moment, within the boundaries that figurative representation provides. My subject matter is children, for their wisdom. Women, because it is my viewpoint. Likenesses often shift to a place that is not fixed; they are as changeable as the layered marks that inform the story.  I prefer the freedom that  uncertainty provides. It is vital to my work.  My most treasured discovery is that:  there is no separation in a world that breathes.



Thanks for visiting.
