My work is a healing practice, reflecting my love of escaping into nature through painting and travel. I keep a sketchbook full of notes and sketches, which I later pull together to create a visual story on canvas using acrylic or oil paint. My paintings show beauty and relaxation in nature and stresses our responsibility to care for our environment, a source of personal renewal and energy. I often try to paint directly from my sketches or from memory, rather than copying a photo. This practice gives an impressionistic, surrealistic, dream-like quality to my work. I participate in art festivals throughout Colorado and the United States. Denver Art Society gives me a fantastic opportunity to network with other artists in the Denver area and display my work in a beautiful gallery alongside several talented artists.
