"I create art to make you smile through the fun use of paint and mixed media textures."

I am drawn to the use of textures, thick paints and glazes, and although I like most palettes, my personal taste is in the use of bright colors and their interaction with each other. The experimentation with different types of textures, including media I create, adds elements of interest to the art. There are no limitations to where my imagination takes me - It's a continuing journey into the...

... creative mind and I'm often surprised with the results. My goal is to use my art to make people happy and evoke a positive feeling!

Art was my college major, but I spent over 20 years in the IT industry, owned a corporate training company, worked on the Space Shuttle and had a VIP invitation to the first Shuttle launch! My career switched when I received representation in a great gallery and my art sold out in a month!

In 2004 a founding member of Sotheby's online art auctions selected me as an American Established Contemporary Expressionist Artist. I was privileged to receive the high honor of being a Listed Artist and am recorded in “Mayer’s International Auction Record”, Zurich, Switzerland, a book used by international art collectors and museums.

My angel paintings are dedicated to those who have died and left us with words of wisdom in a quote. Since art is not usually thrown away (ouch if it is!!!), the words live on in the artwork to be seen by current owners, viewers, and passed down through generations for new eyes to see.

I believe art is for all. Not everyone can afford original art, so I encourage people to start where they are comfortable; and that might be with a small print. Baby steps for some, big leaps for others. Start young appreciating the joy of art, and grow your collection as you are able.

My art has been published as prints worldwide, sold in stores, galleries, and licensed onto over 20 retail products. I've been featured in the Festival Center of 8 Disney/EPCOT Food & Wine or Flower & Garden Festivals, and in 2007 was the Flower & Garden Festival Poster Artist. I've been on PBS television several times and featured as an artist on FOX.

I enjoy working with and helping Kids Beating Cancer and the most amazing children. They feed my soul.
