Why art? This is my “encore career”. After years of 8 to 5 traveling Indiana, I began thinking of my legacy.

I awakened to life which gave me certain freedoms which I never allowed myself before. I wanted to leave the world a better place than when I entered it.

More than ever, people need beauty in their lives. I strive to capture in my impressionist style a true sense of place and an emotional reaction to it. I am pleased when people express a feeling of “being there” when viewing my work.

That’s my inspiration.

A sign in my studio reads “You are here for the joy and delight of your soul” an Amish saying about life on Earth.
