I live on a quiet farm surrounded by flower beds and bird feeders. Over the years, I have become an avid gardener, and that passion inspires much of my artwork. Nine months out of the year I have both paint and soil under my fingernails at some point every day. Watching my flowerbeds blossom and grow brings me as much joy and peace as watching a blank canvas fill with color and beauty. Walking the line between realism and impressionism, my floral paintings are an attempt to honor nature’s perfection.
