Artist Statement

I like to paint the beauty that can be found in everyday objects.  I paint what I find interesting and hope that the objects or subjects I paint will speak for themselves.  In this fast-paced world, it is easy to overlook our own habitats…the people, places, and objects we choose to hold close.  I paint to explore the process and for the pleasure of creating. This exhibit explores the versatility of Colored Pencil on different surfaces.  I hope that my work causes the viewer to pause, and look a little closer.
