Winter Park, Florida
I am a native of Winter Park, Florida, long time member of McRae Art Studios and a full time artist for over 18 years. I have worked in many mediums, including drawing, collage and assemblage, but I have found no greater joy or more satisfying art making experience than painting outside. Like so many people, I feel happiest and most alive when surrounded by nature. The challenge of capturing the fleeting light, rich colors and the ever-changing shapes that make up our outdoor world, and translate them into a finished painting is thrilling to me. My goal, at it’s core, is to share the “feeling” of a place. While I enjoy every part of the plein air painting process, I find I am especially enamored with mixing color and the lush, beautiful, thick, paint itself.
