I am a visual artist based in Leesburg, Virginia, USA. I create painted stories that are a vision of earthy joy that exists in the here and now. My art is my way to seeing and being in Nature. It is an emotional world, without formal academic ties and with permission to play and approach a theme from multiple points of view. Be it undulating hills, playful oceans, roaring streams or majestic mountains, my images allow me to create a language and rhythm filled with fine lines, moving patterns, and curious inhabitants. My paintings invite you to experience the unfettered joy of being alive, relax the mind and soothe the soul.
