|There was a special curiosity fostered in me as a child. Stories I heard about 2 great aunts who spent their adult lives in France tickled my imagination. A painting trip to France in 1996 furthered my interest. Since then, I have been painting European subjects with great joy. These scenes are often the landscape with an architectural or figure element included to lend scale to the subject. In addition, I may find interior scenes to capture on canvas. I also enjoy painting still life and landscapes around home here in Colorado.
My painting style would be classifed as representational with an impressionist look. I enjoy creating strong color and texture with oils on canvas.
