I’m an impressionist, landscape oil painter. I love filling my canvas with color and thick paint. Though I am drawn to a variety of subjects, my favorite subject is landscape. It evolved out of my love of the plein air painting process. I paint scenes of the Twin Cities, greater Minnesota and beyond.
I have also had the opportunity to spend time abroad creating collections of France and Italy. Painting has become a way of cataloging my life. Each painting is a small representation of what I’m drawn to, where I’ve been, and what I’ve experienced.
My inspiration includes natural beauty, visual intrigue, memories, and relationships between people and their environments. As I attempt to capture the beauty of a scene my sense of place intensifies and time disappears. I truly become engaged.
