Here are all the skeletons in my closet. I love skellies because they’re fearless, fun-loving and free. All the things I want to be.

I love painting people and pets and sometimes both together. They’re challenging and interesting and keep me feeling connected.

Walking in the Dunes, soft pastel on sanded paper, 9×12″

When I was feeling overwhelmed and lost I found solace in nature. Every day I go walking in the woods or on the beach and recharge there.

The Water

pastel painting of a wave breaking
Wave Portrait No. 161, pastel on gessoed mat board, 6×9″.

Some days I just want to lay on the sand and listen to the surf. These paintings are about the the water. I’ve always lived around lakes and rivers and the ocean. It pulls at me like a tide and I love to paint it.
