Art is a reflection of life. Blessed are those who find joy in the simple and beauty in the ordinary. I find immense joy in the process of creating. I love to paint from life and sketch on location, capturing fleeting moments for posterity. I like to paint portraits of people, places, plants and animals. I try to capture not just the likeness but the essence of my subjects. I tend to use a limited palette to achieve harmony in my work.
