Art has been a part of my life since I was a child watching my father paint. He instilled a love of the beauty of nature and the simple things in life that mean so much to all of us. I have been painting professionally for around twenty years. Growing up in a rural setting with farms and glorious beauty of the seasons is what inspires my paintings. It’s fun to bring the beauty of the countryside and maybe an untold story of an old house or barn to life! I always have a story in mind behind the landscape and people in my pictures. My hope is that my artwork will bring you to another place. A place where you can feel the breeze in the fields, the comfort and warmth of another time and the contentment of. “Home”.
