Oil painting

Though life is full, it is also short. Finding time for creativity keeps me happy.

Artist Statement

Whether I’m painting a portrait, creating a mixed media piece, or taking a photograph, I really enjoy the creative process. I don’t like to stay too long in one vein. My work changes like my moods, much like the music I listen to. Some days it’s classical, others it is alternative... Squirrel!! Life is full, so when I find something that inspires me (like discovering a unique stick or a cool bug to photograph) I jump into action, and stay with it until I’m ready to move to my next window of inspiration.
