"Art that makes you smile"

  I paint the stories going on in my head. They may be of romance, friendships, whimsy or subtle surrealism. My goal is to create images capable of taking the viewer on their own magical journey.

  My style is recognized by the use of bright colors and bold designs developed over a lifelong career as an artist. I find living near the ocean so surreal... I am always in awe of the beautiful landscapes and witnessing the amazing power and beauty of nature and the many cultures on the island; it is truly inspiring.
 

   "I CONSIDER A PAINTING SUCCESSFUL WHEN THE OBSERVER STOPS, TAKES A CLOSER LOOK, AND THEN SMILES."
