Every artist dips her brush in her own soul and paints her own nature into her pictures. ~ Henry Ward Beecher
I am an Artist, painting in Oils primarily, Watercolors and Acrylics...drawing with Graphite Pencils. I have been an Artist for as long as I can remember. There has always been a need within me to pick up a pencil or a paint brush and put what I see, what attacks my senses and heart, and recreate it on paper or canvas. Although my style is different and recognizable, realistic results that will preserve the subject through time is most important to me. Finding an old, neglected, weathered barn or homestead and recreating it into a piece of art that sparks your interest in the story behind the subject inspires me to paint. Seeing the laughter and tears of a young child inspires me to capture the moment. It is the natural, the untouched, the beauty of nature and the world that surrounds me that takes my breath away and leads me to the easel. Perhaps my life experiences have led me to seize the imperfect as well as the perfect moments. My goal is to share what my eyes see, what my heart feels, and to provide a pleasure or memory for those that share my perspective. There is a desire to embrace the natural talent God has given me and share with others. My hope is to provide that place where we come together and better understand the previous generations and the history of where we come from.
