About

When I was a child I had a great aunt who was an artist. By that I mean she had taught art in high schools, she had taken painting lessons from among others, a well-known portrait artist and she painted at the Louvre in Paris. Most of all her paintings were beautiful. I would go to her home on Saturday mornings and she taught me “art”.

Over the years I have painted and studied different styles, realistic, impressionist, contemporary, abstract. I have focused on nature and animals.

I decided, with the advancements in photography, if one should want a scene to look like a photo then a photo might be a better choice. I began to experiment with contemporary abstract images of nature and have found it most delightful.
All of my paintings are nature oriented. Even my abstract paintings are based on thoughts of nature. They say a painting reflects the artist’s personality. If that is true then my paintings should present a feeling of kind thoughtfulness and reflect a kindred spirit to nature.
Thank you for viewing my art. I hope you find just that right one to inspire you. All paintings are guaranteed to satisfy. If you find for any reason you are not delighted with your purchase, I offer a 7 day return policy in which I will return your payment (with the exception of shipping charges) after the painting has been received back.
