The objective of my work is to make the viewer happy, with a sense of freedom, curiosity, and wonderment. I enjoy painting what I know, kids, animals, nature ,colors, and experiences. My work is intimate because of that knowledge. The strong colors, textures, and subject matter, give a sense of atmosphere and fun. I work mainly with acrylic paints, but also enjoy oils, pastels, mixed media, and collage. Another goal in my work, is to, "tickle the eye," by periodically incorporating actual puzzle pieces into selected paintings. I always say, "if you're not having fun, you'd better get a different brush!".
Commissioned works are always something I look forward to and I welcome studio visits when possible. I teach private and group workshops, corporate team building, produce special projects with schools, and I also work with art therapy clientele. Feel free to use the Contact page for any questions.
I am currently showing at the Hot Shops Art Center with a studio there and also showing at the Artists' Cooperative Gallery, both in downtown Omaha. My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
