A Note from the Artist: "The things I treasure most in life are family, friends and painting. Much of my time is spent chasing my sweet, teenage son, a sweet ol'dog named Naila. When I'm not pulling out splinters and bandaging hurt knees I am in my studio painting and dreaming up images. Early mornings are spent in the studio, while everything is still and quiet. Paint is applied to paper or canvas, using gesso, acrylic paint and oil sticks, adding layers of color and texture, more by instinct than critical thought, creating images that are spontaneous and full of energy and spirit. I hope you enjoy these pieces of my life!"
