I have enjoyed drawing and painting since a child. I studied a BA degree with Fine Art being my major and taught in high schools for a number of years. My preferred medium is oils and pastel. My art is mainly figurative and I enjoy portraits.
Recently I have started a series of paintings with hands and water as metaphors for life and relationships. I like painting water because it is vital. These paintings have deeper meaning and express spiritual thoughts and feelings about life. I believe that each painting can be interpreted by the viewer in their own personal way.
