There are many many many artists and decorators and photographers out there who are "better", have more "technique". and experience or training , who can make something look more "realistic" and who can decorate with more sopistication. I am not in competition with them. I only compete with myself. I learn from my mistakes and I take big chances. My style is me! And there is only ONE ME!

People have asked me what my "style" is. Hmmm... My style is very much my own. Definitely not traditional, maybe a bit impressionistic, but not completely Modern either. When I think about it my painting style actually mirrors my decorating style, and even the style I use to dress up. I like to be comfortable and though I like pretty things, never so pretty that you cannot relax into them . I want my paintings and my home and my clothes to make me and you comfortable too, maybe even make you smile. Sometimes I use bright colors and other times pastels and that usually is a reflection of my subject or my mood. I never want to be too predictable and rarely do I do the same thing twice. I am always trying on new styles, new colors. There is a room in my house that I have painted ten times in 6 years, I call it my "color therapy" room.
