About the Artist

When I begin to paint, I am all about composition and color.  I may start with a rough charcoal sketch or just start applying paint and going with the flow and mood of the day.  Santa Fe has wonderful light, sunsets and mountains so I am inspired by my environment.  Even though I am not thinking about any particular aspect of nature when I start, I love when someone looks at the painting and sees a river, clouds or trees because, to me, that means my painting has drawn them to linger and enjoy what I have created.
