For over twenty-five years, I have painted portraits of people and their pets, nautical and botanical subjects, and landscapes throughout the United States. Art started as a hobby but quickly turned into my life-long passion. I have illustrated short stories and am currently illustrating a children's book to be published soon.
A number of leading artists, including Bob Ross, have influenced my work. I enjoy working in a variety of mediums: acrylic, watercolor, pencil, pastels, charcoal and pen.
I enjoy sharing my art with others and believe in art supporting the community. To this end, I have donated paintings to support art auctions for non-profit organizations including the Alzheimer's Association, Autism Society and Cancer Research.
