I live in the middle of a forest in the high country of Colorado. It is the wild beauty of my surroundings that inspires my digital paintings of wildlife and nature. I grew up in Southern California and have been creating since childhood, always drawing, painting or making something. Painting wildlife and nature, color and detail, are my passions. I have a fine art background in oil painting, however I really enjoy the freedom of the digital medium as it stimulates my imagination and offers so many exciting possibilities.
My Language of Flowers series is inspired by my fascination with the colors and textures of flowers, and the way they always speak to my heart. My Spirit Of The Wild series is inspired by my love for animals. Many of the creatures in this series are or were at one time among the endangered species. I believe each has something precious and special to give to all of us and each painting is a tribute to these amazing creatures, where I strive to capture their essence. Many of the animals I paint have a spiritual quality with the power to heal hearts and spirits, if one is open to their message.
