My work is in private and corporate collections and is well loved and accepted in gallery and live shows, public auctions, juried events and retail settings. A love of the abstract, I paint completely from memory and imagination, or my impression of your personal photographs, resulting in a pleasing happy art, in an original form, usually in bold colors and capturing a mood or impression or subtleness of a moment!
