After raising my family I finally had time to pick up a brush and begin fulfilling a desire to paint. So far, acrylics have proven the medium for me to express my inspiration from life in vivid colors and different styles. Often I put people into the paintings to help draw me into the emotion of the moment. Landscapes, beachscapes, flowers and neighbourhood views are put on canvas. These moments spent painting bring me a lot of joy. I hope that same feeling is felt by anyone viewing them. I call myself "The Happy Artist". Mostly self-taught and always learning, my paintings portray peace and happiness. I want to share the joy and wonder of God's creation and life's experience. Enjoy!
