To me, painting is relaxing and my way of getting time with God and His creation. I want to soak it in, to understand it as well as I can, and then capture the special beauty in life as light and shadow splashes across the scene. I enjoy painting so many different subjects- everything from architecture to wildlife to cityscapes to rural scenes. I have always loved being outside so I really enjoy plein air painting. Nature never fails to reward and challenge me as an artist with its constantly changing colors, light, and atmosphere. When painting, I depend on my design skills as a graphic designer, spirited brushstrokes and tonal unity. I also enjoy working in my studio in Ashland, Ohio when I can not get outside.
