about me

I love to paint. I love to tell stories.

I paint people, I paint landscapes. I tell stories with my painting. I paint narrative fine art paintings and I paint picture book illustrations. Both make me happy. I like to paint stories because stories tell us who we are, connect us to our community and reflect the rhythms of life. A scrumptious mingling of breaths, lives, and identities which I express in paint.

I also teach. I teach painting and I teach drawing. I teach because it keeps me humble. I tell stories while I teach. I am always learning from my students. My story is on-going…a collection of small details dropped and added by the people I encounter over time…part of a larger narrative.

About me? My shoulder is sore, and my mouth is dry, because…

I love to paint. I love to tell stories.
