I am an artist with a passion for color! Beach paintings in your home will preserve the fun of your summer holidays!

For the past couple of years I have been specializing in small vignettes of colorful beach scenes.

"Palm trees, ocean breeze, salty air, sun kissed hair. That endless summer, take me there."

I’m very attracted to the vibrant ever-changing colors of the beach, the evening skies over the ocean, the early sunrises and the calming effect of the rolling waves at dusk. I have a feeling of calmness during the creative process and would like to communicate this peacefulness to my viewers.

I love to capture people on the beach, relaxing, wading, jogging, children playing, flying a kite, walking the dog etc.
I hope my 'fun beach paintings' bring you happy memories of summer holidays.

Another passion is painting animals. My animal paintings will start with a few lines loosely painted on board, then thick, luscious oil paint is added, molded and sculpted with a palette knife until my animal raises off the board and comes to life!

I also have a love of overseas travel, particularly Italy, France, Croatia and England. These travels have resulted in many solo exhibitions of landscapes, street scenes, hilltop villages, café life and fruit markets, etc.

Thank you for visiting my Etsy Shop, please come again!
