Living in the Ozark hills, I awake each day to beauty around me. Magnificent views out every window . . .and I particularly enjoy the valleys where the streams, rocks and cliffs are there for me to put on canvas.

I was introduced to the Mountain View Art Guild and my painting journey began in year 2000. My artistic style has since developed out of explorations in oil, acrylic, watercolor and mixed media. You will see realism and expressionistic art in bold and energetic colors throughout my work. Experimenting with something I’ve never done is exciting. Putting paint on canvas gives me peace and joy. Art to me is a necessary expression of the creativity that God has given me.
