about me

Art is my passion!


Primarily self taught, I have been drawing and painting since I can remember. After a long career in finance, I finally left the corporate world to pursue my biggest dream . . . . of becoming an artist.   

I see the world in brilliant colors!  My paintings add a splash of gorgeous color to people's lives.  I believe color is the universal language that speaks positive energy and communicates strong emotions.   I also think that animals bring out the creativity, magic, and wonder within us.  It’s a combination with timeless appeal for the young, old, and anyone in-between!


My long-standing medium of choice has been acrylics, because of their layering capabilities and intense vivid colors. In my paintings, I strive to capture the unique personality, an engaging look, or the lively spirit of the animal.


My paintings are frequently imaginative, fun, and simply happy!  I want folks to smile, love, and laugh when viewing my works!
