The beauty of the world around me has always been apparent and exciting to me. I began to paint in order to attempt to capture that beauty in some way through my art. Playing with shape and color, line and texture, I like to go beyond what I see and explore possibility in my work. I don’t want to limit my perspective or technique, nor do I want to constrain my approach in any way. I love having every option available to me. This makes the journey toward completion of a painting exhilarating. Anything is possible! My perspective is reflected in the variety of mediums and approaches used in my work.
Why I Teach
The exchange between my students and I is one of the most personally rewarding things I do as an artist. I know first-hand the power that art has to transform people’s lives in a positive way. I love to share that transformative energy with my students. Art is a gift, and for me that gift is not complete until it is given away.
Furthermore, I also treasure the exchanges of the heart that often happen when a painting sells and goes home with an enthusiastic collector. Often that exchange turn into a friendship. My determination to donate proceeds from my sales to charity is often a factor. Together with, (and thanks to) my collectors, we try to make the world a little kinder place through charitable donations.

Goal for Sales: Charitable Donation
I love the exchange which happens when others share an enjoyment of my paintings. When it comes to sales, I admire the concept of doing good while doing business. Charitable donation is at the heart of my business plan and a minimum of 30% of my art sales goes to charity. My goal is to partner with collectors in order to create a win-win-win transaction. I ask patrons to share specific charities they like to support and we work together to make a donation from all sales. I hope to sell art and also sell the idea of doing good while doing business.
