“The thrill of taking a piece of white paper, and by adding paint change it into an object of interest, is a reward that drives me to paint. I feel I can hear the sound of water or  the rustle of leaves in a light breeze as the painting develops under my brush. I find  inspiration and motivation by spending time in the woods, along streams, at the beach, in the mountains, winter and summer. The wonder of colors and shapes, the  sounds and smells all have an effect on many of  my paintings and each one has
a little  part of me.”
