Through the pursuit of beauty we shape the world as a home, and in doing so we both amplify our joys and find consolation for our sorrows.
Hello and welcome to my online art gallery! I’m so glad that you’re here!
I’d love for you to take a look around and browse the home page for newly released paintings that are still available for sale. Maybe you’ll find a piece you’re immediately drawn to or that is “so you.” Maybe you're looking for a piece that will be a special reminder of a milestone in your life. Maybe you’re drawn to exuberant art with a unique and meaningful story and you cherish art that you can enjoy now and also have to pass down to your children or grandchildren as a family heirloom.
If you’re a gallery owner or new to my work and would like to see a broader representation of my paintings, please be sure to check out the “Collection” page which features a selection of my work that has already been sold.
Whatever reason that brings you to my site, one thing that I have learned from talking to my beloved patrons and those who follow my work is that the art really comes to life for them when they hear the story of a piece.
There is SO MUCH I could say about the story of any particular painting and my creative process in general, but today I wanted to share something general to get us better acquainted.
Creating art for me usually goes something like this…
Maybe I notice an imperfectly torn edge of a flower and, instead of rushing on to the next thing, something in me catches, tells me to look a little longer. If I look long enough and look in the “right” way, something so simple as that will move my heart with its staggering beauty.
Or maybe am overwhelmed by the beauty in the tilt of a mother’s head as she gazes at the baby in her arms. Or maybe, seemingly out of no where, I am filled to the point of almost breaking with a sense of something - inspiration- that can be best described as a rhythm I can almost feel or music I can almost hear.
This kind of beauty is everywhere. Beauty is in the details, God is in the details, and beauty and God are everywhere.
But you have to be paying attention.
It is when you are paying attention that you are able to fully receive the beauty and meaningful that you’re always being invited to experience. And when you are fully receiving beauty and meaningful, you have this overwhelming sense that, “THIS is why we are here, this is what it means to be truly ALIVE."
I love to create art because it gives me an excuse to pay attention. It gives me an excuse to stop, look, listen, and feel. And it gives me an opportunity to create a way that others can’t help but pay attention, too.
I hope you stop by my online studio often to check out what’s newly completed and to get sneak peeks into my studio and creative process. Please sign up for my newsletter to become a member of my special studio community and you’ll receive a special monthly release of new paintings as well as be among the first to know about special offers.
Also, I’d love to know whose visiting, so please say hello in the comments below and let me know what paintings are your favorites.
I create art because I love it and also because I can’t help it. But it’s also an immense gift to be able to create art which others love and with which others feel a resonance, so to each and everyone one of you that is here, thank you so much.
With love & gratitude,
