Sand and Shadows
April - May 2022
"My oil paintings are infused with the energy of the oceans, rivers, estuaries, lagoons, mangrove swamps, wildlife, aquatic life, birds and beaches of Florida. I want to instill in the viewer, an understanding and appreciation of the natural world; to enrich and inspire people in their lives to engage with the surrounding natural resources. I am a trained artist, receiving a BFA and an MFA in painting, drawing and printmaking. As for my passion, I love oil painting and nature itself. I hope that the viewers and collectors of my work can be touched in the same way."
