Artist Statement: My inspiration to paint comes from the beauty that I find in art. Whether the style of painting used is realism, abstract, or impressionistic, I can always find beauty in the subject. I paint landscapes, still life, animals, seascape, and people. I paint with acrylics and oils, however, oil is my favorite, and I like vivid colors. My ideas come from everyday life, nature, and my mind’s eye.
