My love of art dates back to childhood. As a child and teen, I never went anywhere without my bag of "drawing stuff" -- pencils, charcoal, paper and magazines for reference photos. In recent years, I began to work in color, taking the leap from pencil and charcoal. My medium of choice is pastel for its vibrant color and direct contact between myself, the pastel and my painting surface.

My subject matter varies widely, whatever catches my eye and imagination. Landscapes have become a favorite and the farmland and mountains near my home provide much inspiration. A definite favorite is also old, rusty trucks and cars. However, I don't limit my subject matter. Often an object or scene just calls out to be painted. As long as I'm creating, I'm happy. When my family comes home at the end of the day and I've got pastel smudges on my face, they know it's been a good day!
