About

As a contemporary landscape artist, my work is a conscious play of mood, light, and color with a simplistic style of tonalism. The peaceful and meditative images allow the viewer to jump in and get lost. Most of my subject matter is typically derived from my own imagination or previous locations from memories past.

A naturalist raised and rooted in the diverse landscapes of NW Pennsylvania, I initially began a professional photographic career which included portraiture and landscapes. My love of creating photographic landscapes allowed for my natural and aesthetic transition to picking up a paint brush and begin painting these beautiful and serene landscapes.

I am a consistent award winner and regularly exhibit in juried shows throughout the United States. I now call St. Petersburg, Florida my home.
