Welcome to About Me.

My art is deeply influenced by
abstract expressionist artist Mark Rothko
whose paintings deal with
basic color combinations and shapes
that create specific moods and impressions.
Nearly all of my art evokes feelings
related to peace, happiness,
hope and serenity.
In many ways, my paintings are quiet
reflections designed to calm and comfort.

My paintings are on display at various
Peoria area institutions and businesses,
including Exhibit A Gallery,
Methodist College, Gallery Homes Realty,
The MAXAM Building, Art Space,
The Center For Prevention of Abuse ,
and Ronald McDonald House Charities.

I also enjoy handpainting and designing
my own HeartART notecard line.
Samples of my HeartART notecards
can be found on the HeartART page
right here on my website.
I also show samples of other notecards on my
Thoughts For Living webpage.
These notecards include inspirational quotes
using my original artwork as a backdrop.

Creating art is a
tremendously rewarding activity.
It is especially rewarding for me
to see how each and every piece of art
takes on a creative life all its own.

Special thanks to Methodist College in Peoria, Illinois
