I have been expressing myself through various art media throughout my life. When I began, I worked in traditional media of water colors, oils and acrylics. Then I moved into photography and now I combine digital photography as the jumping off point, turning them into digital paintings and taking creative liberties with their reality. I also like to do smaller projects creating images for T-shirts, home decor, phone cases, pillows, mugs, etc. These images are typically animals, botanicals, sports, and assorted objects. I moved to California from the East Coast about 20 years ago and have been re-energized with the subjects that are readily available all year...the coastline, surf, beaches, marinas, gardens, flowers and wine country...all the inspiration I could ever need here in one state.
