As an artist raised in the Midwest, the natural beauty of the coastal shoreline has always intrigued and amazed me. I particularly liked the subject matter and the effect of the light, which enhanced the colors, creating unique and interesting reflections and shadows. I strive to blend the fine nuances of color, texture and shapes to create an image that draws the viewer to a pleasant experience. As I continue to paint and continue to grow, I find landscape painting a real challenge as well as a great joy. I use linen canvas on boards or stretched, using professional grade oil paints. My body of work is composed of both Studio and Plein Air paintings
