“If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint’, then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced” -Vincent Van Gogh
I work in several mediums, including; watercolor, oil and acrylic. My commissions range from landscapes and architecture to portraits and pets.
I began painting murals over 20 years ago. My favorite murals have always been children’s murals. I love being able to bring what is in their heads, into their rooms. I love adding whimsy and imagination to a child’s room, I believe if painted right, a mural will grow with the child for a long time, capturing their favorite imagery forever.
Painting has always been a source of joy and fulfillment for me. When painting, I truly feel “in the flow”, tapping into that creative force we all enjoy. I especially love painting subjects for people that bring that same joy and wanderlust. Capturing a childhood home, now long gone, a landscape you’ve once visited, or a place you’ve only dreamt about, this is my goal as a painter.
