“My language is art and my voice is my brushstroke.
The catalyst is nature that ignites an inner poetry and reveals the mystery of the gift that I received.

2022 Spring tour

What is the meaning of life? I am finding it out more and more as each day comes. Each person I meet is a gift and what I receive from each person is a flicker of light that touches my soul and changes the darker shades into light. I am back from another wonderful tour. My heart is full and my energy high after connecting with friends, family and my roots back in the US.
One of my favorite new experiences has been connecting with people to paint together virtually. Over the past two years I have been working to develop my online oil painting classes. Today I am pleased to offer a course that includes ten hours of live instruction, painting demonstrations, art critique and video tutorials. Now you can meet me in my studio and paint with me from anywhere in the world!
