I was born in Florida and had been interested in art from an early age. I continued painting my entire life trying several mediums but found oil to be my favorite. I worked and raised a family but after retirement found I had time to pursue my love of art and painting has become my passion. I live in Sapulpa, OK, and continue studying art and paint the beautiful birds and animals that inspire me.
I have always had a connection with nature and wildlife. I find that painting animals lets me express that connection. The goal of my paintings is to portray to the viewer the awe and beauty that I see in nature. Through painting I have been able to study and learn about the amazing wildlife around all of us.
