"The Gift of Art"       

What this title means to me is not that my art is a gift to others but that I am grateful to have been given the gift of appreciation for art and how, when it is done with heart, we can feel it. I consider myself fortunate for many reasons and not the least is my never ending fascination with the lush beauty of the world that is all around us, everyday, everywhere we go. It's so easy to overlook the simple wonders of existence and the joy that they offer. My paintings  are an attempt at capturing extraordinary, yet often considered commonplace, overlooked scenes and moments that I slowed down for and didn't miss. Painting is an expression of my gratitude and appreciation for the gift of this short visit.
