While my passion to paint a more traditional style of landscape has held my interest from the start, I am experimenting with a more exaggerated field of form and color value.  I am blending brushstroke and palette knife to develop a more freely organized pattern design. Finding that to liberate the rules of my own prejudice has released a spirit and emotional experience I felt as a child. I feel so privileged to paint the experience of nature’s undulating perfection and to make it my life work of it’s bountiful beauty.
