I began painting in the fall of 2002.  It provided a creative outlet as well as a connection to my mom, also an artist, who had passed away in June.  I still feel that connection every time I paint. 

I think that because I had always enjoyed trying to capture the beauty of nature in photographs, I naturally gravitated toward landscape painting.  Much of my inspiration comes from photos taken during a trip to Italy, which included a landscape painting class in Tuscany.  I feel such a sense of timelessness and peace in the subjects I choose.  I use fairly thin layers of paint and dry brushing to create a softer, more serene look.  I hope to continue learning and painting, as art provides both challenge and fulfillment.
