"I love the act of painting, whether it be in oils or pastel. Painting people has always been a challenge and a fascination. Conveying a mood and suggesting inner thoughts, has always been the goal when painting portraits or figures in a situation. Every individual is different with their own inner life. Landscape and still life are also wonderful subjects. There is much beauty in nature and it is a joy to go out and paint it."
