Plein Air Painter


Artist Statement  


You are invited to share in my special way of seeing the beauty in the landscape, painting those subjects

that inspire me.


I search out coastal waterways, country vineyards and backyard gardens.  My use of color is vibrant and the brushwork is loose.  I need to be “on location” to establish

the effects of sunlight and how it creates shadow patterns.

This style of painting is called

“plein air” fresh air painting.


Inspiration comes from my love of travel, combined with my talent at outdoor landscape painting,

now the world is subject

matter for my palette!


Please follow me as I introduce you to my world,  my enthusiasm for painting a “captured moment” that represents a time that once was, and still lives on in my paintings....
