In many ways, my heart rules my head. I tend to paint what I feel inspired and compelled to paint, which sometimes varies widely. At some times this results in recurring subjects and themes, but the diversity of my galleries reflects my varied interests... My online gallery is comprised of several collections and an assorted art section.

Fantasy Art

I sometimes dream of the world as a magical place; where fairies, angels, mermaids, and others take form in clear view. We live in a world I do not always understand; sometimes, I find myself compelled to paint a softer world that is shaped by my imagination.

Floral Art

There is very little to me that is as beautiful yet as fleeting in its beauty as a flower. I try to capture that beauty in my paintings. Initially inspired by my grandparent's garden, I have been drawing and painting flowers for as long as I can remember.

Animal Art

I love to paint animals, the beauty of their souls shines through in their eyes. This section used to also include some assorted art as well as studies, some of them may now be found in the studies section. If there's a specific piece you're looking for that's no longer there, please contact me and I'll check for its availability.

Art Studies

My studies are a diverse mix. Sometimes I study the art of master artists and some of my efforts are here. In some cases I use a master piece as more of a point of inspiration then a study... In other cases I am experimenting with media or subjects that are unusual for me. This is definitely a section I hope to expand. I am greatly inspired as an artist by master artworks, but it is only sometimes reflected directly in my art. I also hope to share some of my toned drawings that I do as studies for paintings.

Abstract Art

There is something in abstraction that pulls me in. Composing an abstract to me is like free form poetry. I am swayed by moods and colors and I let the piece take what form it may. Abstract art can fill me with a great joy. These days I paint abstracts rarely, but I love their loose and flowing appeal.
