My oil paintings express a different side of me artistically. I paint what feels right at the time, whether it's flowers, abstracts, or something totally different. An emotion, feeling, or song is quite often expressed in my work through the brush stroke or intention.

 

I follow my heart when I paint and it never leads me astray. I often do not know where my work is going, but I allow the color or stroke to pull me along. I believe that there are no mistakes in painting, one stroke leads to the next, and in the end you have allowed something to come through you that wasn't there before.
