Texas Colorist and Impressionist

Texas Colorist and Impressionist Painter
Painting with my Heart in my Hand
I was a child living on an east Texas farm when I first became aware of God's great creation. It was here where my love affair with nature began - from the farm animals, the flowers, the cotton bolls, the woods, fields and creeks. My days were filled with wonder! I saw God's handiwork and His creativity, as well as His sense of humor, order, playfulness, and symmetry.Since then,I have been constantly engaged in a dialogue with beauty, whether it be in designing our home, interiors for others, or through painting.
"Although I paint in several different styles,
I find I favor a painterly approach, in which a recognizable form is achieved,
while at the same time the paint and color itself is celebrated.
The brushstrokes themselves are not only visible, but intrinsic to the success of the piece.
Impressionism is the style that best expresses my view the world.
If by chance through my paintings, I can inspire you to discover and create more beauty in your life, then that would be the icing on the cake for me."
It has been my delight to have studied with many wonderful painters, including
Dreama Tolle Perry, George Hallmark, Qiang Huang, Scott Myers, Betty Carr and Judi Betts, among others.
This love affair has been going on for over 35 years.
My paintings have found new homes in private residences and commercial collections all over the USA, from coast to coast.
