Bison Grazing at the Golden Hour

Winter Horse

Legs

Through the Barn Window

The Artist

I love Art!!  It has been an integral part of my life since I could appreciate the wonder of seeing. Although I work primarily as an enamelist and oil painter, I create in a variety of media because there are so many different ways to express God’s gift of sight, color and texture. To try to capture a moment or a mood and put it on canvas or paper, metal or clay—whatever best suits the image I am trying to convey—is a journey in and of itself.

Portfolio

Art has a voice, and it speaks to each individual in a unique way. Sometimes it is a quiet whisper, gently urging the viewer for a closer look, and sometimes it is loud and insistent. Many artists become comfortable with one voice and one form of expression, but I find that art is like music. There are moments when I feel the need for a soothing, gentle melody. But then there are those times when I want to “rock out” and express myself with a bold, high energy.
