Nature provides me with the best subjects for painting. I love to paint the fine details of flowers in a photo-realistic fashion. The bright colors, the way the light caresses the petals, and the intricate pistils inspire me. My goal is that each piece I create brings an emotion or feeling to the viewer. It could be an awe of nature, a feeling of relaxation, or dreams of things to come.
I have always had art as a part of my life….mostly for personal pleasure, but I am expanding my horizons to begin selling my art. I began painting as a stress-reliever over 20 years ago and quickly moved from acrylics to oils, which allows me to create photo-realistic pieces. I hope you enjoy looking at my paintings as much as I enjoy painting them.
Recently, I started to create greeting cards with watercolor paints, ink stamps, and embellishments. These are unique custom cards for the holidays, birthdays, announcements, weddings, etc. Contact me if you are interested in these special hand made cards.
I have been painting since I was 14, with guidance from local teachers. I currently attend college full time, but I try to paint as often as I can. I sell giclee prints of my pieces that are on this site. I enjoy painting detailed, photo-realistic art like my mother, but my subjects are more contemporary then hers.Together we make a great team.
