After over 20 years of working as an art director and illustrator for food packaging, I started to explore pastels and focused on painting landscapes. Color and light fascinate me, and I continually seek the exploration and challenge of interpreting what I see into my paintings. Being outdoors and surrounded by nature always brings me peace and calm, and I am compelled to communicate that in every piece of art I create.
Recently I have expanded my focus to include pet portraits, flora and fauna. I enjoy painting many different subjects and taking what we commonly see so we can appreciate the everyday beauty around us.
