Why Do I Paint?

As long as I can remember, I’ve always had a deep appreciation of nature, including all of the flora and fauna. When I was a little girl, with the encouragement of my grandmother, and began drawing many of the wonderful plants and animals that I admired.

As my technique improved, others began to complement me on my drawings -which spurred me on to continue.

Realizing that by artistic creations became valued by others improved my self confidence and launched me into a brand new career in nature art which I’ve pursued for over 30 years.

My mission is to encourage others to appreciate nature by creating images that realistically demonstrate nature in all its glory. And by doing so, I’d like to encourage people to defend nature and support causes that help preserve our precious natural environment.

I sincerely hope that my paintings will allow people to bring these wondrous scenes and special creatures into their homes and enable them to enjoy and appreciate them every day.

That’s why I paint.
