Artist's Statement

I draw from nature and paint from the heart. I prefer painting florals and having lived in North, Cental and South Florida, I have taken photographs of the flora and fauna of each region. I then draw and paint the flowers, plants and trees as I see them. From palms to native magnolias, I love painting my surroundings. Wild flowers are particularly captivating to photograph and paint.
