My mission as an artist is to make the beauty God's creation come alive. Art has a language all its own which I have been most privileged to discover. It 's been like of breath of fresh air,which has completely captivated me by its challenge.
It thrills me to be able to paint flowers and watch them bloom under my brush. By doing so I can make their beauty last forever on canvas. The rose is my current favorite subject. A rose is usually grown, cut and brought into someone's life to lift and encourage them, to show love! However in a short period of time, the roses die, but the sentiments remain forever. I want to capture the essence of the rose and it's meaning and let it grace our home and others for generations.
As an artist my signature makes a statement of who I am and what I enjoy. Roses grace my home both growing outside and inside on canvas, because I love recreating beauty and life. To be able to bless others with such an enduring message of God's love and beauty brings me deep satisfaction.
As my art has progressed I have found myself doing portraits, landscapes, seascapes, still lifes and plein air paintings. It is a great pleasure to dip my brush into my soul and paint the beauty that surrounds me. I am thankful that God has blessed me with this great love of art.
